Felicia and the Rat (book and music)

by Mauro Magellan

This is a story about a rat who finally found some friends to play with...really. Louie lives high up on a rooftop. Sometimes he feels lonely. He likes to play the drums, but he doesn’t have anybody to play with. Down on the street however, it’s a different story. When the moon is high in the sky, the cats come out to play. Louie plays along from his rooftop home. He dreams of one night going down there and playing along with those cats, but they might not want to play with him. You see, Louie, well...he’s a rat. Now, this wouldn’t be a story if he hadn’t gone down and asked Felicia, who sings and plays guitar, if he could play with them...would it?

Growing up in a Grandfamily

by Nichola Gutgold, Brittany Avent, illustrated by Jane Ramsey

Growing up isn’t easy, and when you don’t have your mom and dad around, it can seem even harder sometimes. But some kids grow up with help from their grandparents and other adults and kids that make up their grandfamilies in their own chosen family villages. Brittany and her brother Bryant were fortunate to be raised by their grandparents, Nonna and Poppie (Loretta and Jacques Avent). Their childhood often felt “different” (and not only because their Nonnie worked in the White House)! They felt different because their family was different than a lot of their friends’ families. But different doesn’t mean bad, and when you can piece together your own grandfamily, it can be pretty incredible, too!

Stardust Child

by Joann Rose Leonard

Why? What? Where? How? Children are full of questions as their minds are busy figuring out the intricacies and immensities of themselves and their universe. Stardust Child was inspired by the words of renowned astrophysicist, Neil deGrasse Tyson. “We are biologically connected to everything in the world. We are all, not figuratively, but literally, made of stardust.” The story of Stardust Child celebrates that we all share the same essence despite limiting labels and cultural differences. Picture by picture, the story instills the concept of our oneness, our ecological interdependence, and the unique light that each of us brings to the world. Keep asking questions!

Mermaid and the Star

by Sherrie Conaway

A beautiful goodnight story to be enjoyed over and over. As Star falls from the heavens and plummets into the ocean, a terrible fate awaits him - if he is not rescued by Mermaid before hitting the ocean’s floor. He could become a “star that crawls, but dreams no more” and forget how he once twinkled “up above the world so high, like a diamond in the sky.” This favorite lullaby is transformed by a young girl dreaming about the night sky and the mysteries of the vast sea, and it reminds us - kids and adults alike - how important our innate sense of child-like wonder is as we explore our world and keep our dreams alive.
