Families Can

Written by Dan Saks and Brooke Smart

Release date: April 6, 2021

A rhyming, light-hearted celebration of the wonderful differences that make each family unique.

A family can be

Any kind of number

Maybe there’s one parent

Strong like thunder

This charmingly heartfelt board book is for families: families who cook together and families who sing together, families with lots of members and families with a special few, families who live together and families who live separately—for all families. Celebrate the differences that make each family unique and the similarities and love that connect us all together.

The Rock From the Sky

Written and illustrated Jon Klassen.

Release Date: April 13, 2021

Look up! From the Caldecott Medal–winning creator of the Hat Trilogy comes a new deadpan gem.

There is a spot.
It is a good spot.
It is the perfect spot to stand.
There is no reason to ever leave.
But somewhere above there is also a rock.
A rock from the sky.

Here comes The Rock from the Sky, a hilarious meditation on the workings of friendship, fate, shared futuristic visions, and that funny feeling you get that there’s something off somewhere, but you just can’t put your finger on it. Merging broad visual suspense with wry wit, celebrated picture book creator Jon Klassen gives us a wholly original comedy for the ages.

 

Veggie Power

Written by Olaf Hajek.

Release Date: April 27, 2021

This illustrated garden of vegetable delights will make children interested in learning about what’s on their plates.

As more and more families focus on local and organic eating, this delightful introduction to common vegetables offers a delectable serving of uncommonly beautiful illustrations and fascinating information. As in his previous book, Flower Power, Olaf Hajek’s wondrously imaginative and detailed illustrations of vegetables are paired with engaging and eye-opening texts. Organized by season, the book tells how each vegetable is grown, how it can be enjoyed on our plates, its health benefits, historical tidbits, and botanical fun facts. From the first spring onion to pumpkins harvested just before the frost, this inviting journey through the growing seasons celebrates the artistic, historical, and culinary bounty that awaits us in the garden and at the table.
