It Began with a Page: How Gyo Fujikawa Drew the Way written by Kyo Maclear illus. by Julie Morstad

Gyo Fujikawa’s is the inspiring story of a Japanese American woman succeeding despite the social limitations of the early 1900s. This well-illustrated book will appeal to anyone interested in art, history, and feminism. Gyo’s dedication to bringing her multicultural artwork into the mainstream media was groundbreaking and, I believe, her greatest accomplishment and contribution to creating a more diverse society. - SC

Life: The First Four Billion Years written by Martin Jenkins illus. by Grahame Baker-Smith

This is a gorgeous book, perfect for art fiends and science lovers alike. Packed with information, it is well-balanced without being over-whelming, and the book itself is striking. It reminds us of our tiny blip-ness in the overall scheme of things and shows how connected everything is. Younger me would have spent hours staring at this book and current me is equally entranced. - Rachel

The President Sang Amazing Grace written by Zoe Mulford illus. by Jeff Scher

This book is for all of us—young and old, all races and ethnicities. The words and watercolors bring back that day in Charleston when “no words could say what must be said for all the living and the dead,” and President Obama lifted us out of despair by humbly singing “Amazing Grace.” Read the book, watch the video online, hear the song. Cry, and then share this with every child old enough to understand. There’s work to be done. - Noreen
