A delightful holiday offering no matter what you celebrate in December!

I am a mix of two traditions.
From Daddy Christmas and Hanukkah Mama.
How lucky am I?

Holiday time at Sadie's house means golden gelt sparkling under the Christmas tree, candy canes hanging on eight menorah branches, voices uniting to sing carols about Macabees and the manger, and latkes on the mantel awaiting Santa's arrival.

Selina Alko's joyous celebration of blended families will make the perfect holiday gift for the many Americans who celebrate both Christmas and Hanukkah.

Retro Resource: CROW Educator Guide

Retro Resources is a feature that highlights classroom and library materials you may have missed.

For our first Retro Resource feature, we’d like to highlight an educator guide for a book that quickly became a favorite in our department: Crow by Barbara Wright.  Impeccably researched and heartbreaking, Crow is the story of a young African American boy witnessing white supremacists oust the city government of Wilmington, North Carolina–the only successful coup d’etat in American History. We’re not alone in our love, either–the book received starred reviews from School Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, Kirkus, and The Horn Book when it was published in January 2012. While it’s set after the Civil War has ended and before the implementation of the Jim Crow laws in the south, we feel that it will enrich units on either time period and serve as a great way to introduce talking points on African American history and how it’s portrayed, government and government structure, prejudice, and the Civil Rights Movement.
