Books About the World:

How My Parents Learned to Eat by Ina R Friedman I absolutely love this story about a little girl that sometimes eats with chopsticks and sometimes eats with a fork and knife. Why? Her father is American and her mother is Japanese. This delightful story describes the customs of both cultures, and shows how the couple must meld their eating styles and customs to pass along to their daughter.

Books About the United States of America:

The ABC Book of American Homes by Michael Shoulders We had the opportunity to meet Mike Shoulders when he visited our local library and did a presentation for several of his books. He was a fantastic speaker, and was able to keep both the young and the not so young audience members engaged. His book, The ABC Book of American Homes is a wonderful book about the many types of structures that Americans call home. My favorite: The yurt! This book offers a unique view point of America, its homes, and its people.

Armadillo Rodeo by Jan Brett I don’t know which I like more, the illustrations or the story itself, because both are absolutely delightful. This is the story of Bo, a near-sighted armadillo. When he gets separated from his mama, he ‘meets’ a set of red cowboy boots which he mistakenly believes is another armadillo. The boots belong to a girl named Harmony Jean who is on a mission to scruff them up. Children will delight in following Bo’s adventures as he follows his ‘new friend’ through the Texas countryside. Meanwhile Bo’s mama and siblings are searching for him in all of the wrong places. Just wait until you see what Bo does at the end of the story…
