      Treasury of Bible Stories: Prophecy and Peril, Exile and Forgiveness

      by Donna Jo Napoli

      Feb 2020

      Religious Books Elementary

      Noah’s Ark, Moses, David and Goliath, the ten plagues, Daniel and the lions’ den, Jonah and the giant fish, and many more of the Bible’s most powerful stories—27 in all—are compellingly retold in this beautifully illustrated treasury. Readers will be fascinated by the ancient people and events they encounter, surprised by some of the lesser-known accounts revealed, and inspired by the lessons these tales impart. Stories cover important ground beyond religion, such as culture, history, and geography, and they touch on issues that remain relevant today—faith, loyalty, kindness, violence, generosity, greed, jealousy, and more. These accessible, readable stories give kids a rich picture of biblical times, which encourages them to think about our role in the world and to learn more.

      Introduction. Note on the illustrations. Map. Time line. “The People of the Bible.” Bibliography. Index. Full-color illustrations.

      Sick Kids in Love

      by Hannah Moskowitz

      Feb 2020

      City High School

      Isabel has one rule: no dating. All the women in her family are heartbreakers, and she’s destined to become one, too, if she’s not careful. But when she goes to the hospital for her RA infusion, she meets a gorgeous, foul-mouthed boy who has her rethinking the no-dating rule and ready to risk everything.

      Aleksander is chronically ill, too, and there’s a softer side underneath all his jokes. Isabel finds herself unraveling the secrets of a real person, rather than crowdsourcing her decisions through her online column Sick Girl Wants to Know. They fall for each other hard and fast, but Isabel has known all along they were headed for disaster. When a devastating family secret threatens their love, can she find the strength to claim a brave, new life with Aleksander, or will she retreat to the safety she’s always depended on and break his heart?

      Los dioses del Norte: La leyenda del bosque (The Gods of the North: The Legend of the Forest)

      by Jara Santamaria

      Feb 2020

      Spanish Middle

      Three cousins. Two worlds. One secret.

      The legend goes that in the Baztán Valley, the gods coexisted in brotherhood, and the creatures of the day and night could live in harmony. But Gaueko, the terrible god of the night, started to torment the humans with his pack of wolves, and the goddess of the Earth, Mari, created the Moon and the Sun to protect them from the darkness. However, Gaueko’s thirst for power led him to concoct a plan to capture the Sun, and thus definitively establish his kingdom of shadows. Blinded with rage, Mari divided the world in two, and now nothing and no one can cross the line between them.

      Teo, Emma, and Ada don’t like each other at all, but they are cousins, and circumstances have led them to spend the summer together in their grandmother’s small village in Navarre. When one of them disappears and the others go searching, they discover a universe of wizards and gods, of irascible giants and beautiful women with raptor claws, in which the terrible god Gaueko has imposed darkness. A world in which they can only save themselves from the shadows if they stay united and discover their own magic.

      Gross as a Snot Otter: The World of Weird Animals

      by Jess Keating

      Feb 2020

      Nonfiction Early Elementary Plus

      The creators of Pink Is for Blobfish are back, and they’ve brought seventeen of their most revolting friends: there are slippery, slimy snot otters, gulls that projectile-vomit on command, fish that communicate via flatulence, and chipmunks that cultivate healthy forests by pooping a trail of seeds wherever they go. But there’s more to these skin-crawling creatures than meets the eye, and as zoologist Jess Keating explains, sometimes it’s the very things that make us gag that allow these animals to survive in the wild.

      The perfect combination of yuks, yucks, and eureka!’s, this latest installment in the World of Weird Animals series will inspire budding scientists and burp enthusiasts alike!

      Fuego, Fueguito / Fire, Little Fire

      by Jorge Argueta

      Feb 2020

      Primary Spanish

      "My name is Fire / but everyone calls me / Little Fire."

      From its birth as a spark, Little Fire flits like a firefly and plays hide and seek inside a volcano. He grows between two sticks rubbed together or on a stone that strikes another. Little Fire is red, yellow, orange and turquoise. "I look like the sun / but I am no sun. / I am Fire, Little Fire / who laughs, / who dances." Little Fire sings, "sizzle, / hiss, / whoosh, / crackle, crackle."

      With stunningly beautiful illustrations by Felipe Ugalde Alcntara that depict the natural world, this poem about the importance of fire reflects Argueta's indigenous roots and his appreciation for nature. Containing the English and Spanish text on each page, the entire poem appears at the end in Nahuat, the language of Argueta's Pipil-Nahua ancestors. The sequel to Agua, Aguita / Water, Little Water, this book is an excellent choice to encourage children to write their own poems about the environment.

      Translation of the text in Nahuat. Full-color illustrations.

      All-American Muslim Girl

      by Nadine Jolie Courtney

      Feb 2020

      PG High Plus

      Allie Abraham has it all going for her—she’s a straight-A student with good friends and a close-knit family, and she’s dating popular, sweet Wells Henderson. One problem: Wells’s father is Jack Henderson, America’s most famous conservative shock jock, and Allie hasn’t told Wells that her family is Muslim. It’s not like Allie’s religion is a secret. It’s just that her parents don’t practice, and raised her to keep it to herself. But as Allie witnesses Islamaphobia in her small town and across the nation, she decides to embrace her faith—study, practice it, and even face misunderstanding for it. Who is Allie if she sheds the façade of the “perfect” all-American girl?

      Something Deeply Hidden: Quantum Worlds and the Emergence of Spacetime

      by Sean Carroll

      Feb 2020

      Adult Crossover Nonfiction Plus

      Something Deeply Hidden begins with the news that physics is in a crisis. Quantum mechanics underlies all of modern physics, but major gaps in the theory have been ignored since 1927. Science popularizers keep telling us how weird it is, how contradictory, how impossible it is to understand. Academics discourage students from working on the “dead end” of quantum foundations. Putting his professional reputation on the line, Carroll says that crisis can now come to an end. We just have to accept that there is more than one of us in the universe. There are many, many Sean Carrolls. Many of every one of us.

      The Many Worlds theory of quantum behavior says that every time there is a quantum event, a world splits off with everything in it the same, except in that other world the quantum event didn’t happen. As you read this, you are splitting into multiple copies of yourself thousands of times per second. Step-by-step in Carroll’s uniquely lucid way, he sets out the major objections to this utterly mind blowing notion until his case is inescapably established.

      Appendix. Further reading. References. Index. Black-and-white diagrams and photographs.

      Graphic Novels Elementary Plus

      Moon is everything Christine isn't. She’s confident, impulsive, artistic …and though they both grew up in the same Chinese American suburb, Moon is somehow unlike anyone Christine has ever known. But after Moon moves in next door, these unlikely friends are soon best friends, sharing their favorite music videos and painting their toenails when Christine's strict parents aren't around. Moon even tells Christine her deepest secret: that she has visions, sometimes, of celestial beings who speak to her from the stars. Who reassure her that Earth isn't where she really belongs.

      Moon's visions have an all-too-earthly root, however, and soon Christine's best friend is in the hospital, fighting for her life. Can Christine be the friend Moon needs, now, when the sky is falling?

      Afterword with photographs. Full-color illustrations done with pencil, pen, and Photoshop.
