    My name is Kate Metroka, and I’m starting a campaign to get Ellen Degeneres on board with helping my children’s book series to get published. The series emphasizes strong female characters and is highly relevant in today’s world. Let’s start rewiring the way our culture treats little girls one children’s book at a time! I would love if you could watch the videos below, and give them a like or a share. Have a great week!

    I admire your blog immensely and have been hoping you would help spread the word about the bi-lingual book Joelito’s Big Decision/La gran decisión de Joelito (Hard Ball Press, ages 5 and up). Beautifully illustrated by prize winning muralist and artist Daniel Camacho, It’s about a boy, a burger a friendship and the struggle for a living wage. Certain to provoke lively discussions that contribute to the creation of a more just and joyful world. Named by Teaching for Change as one of the notable children’s books of 2015.

    Don’t forget Henry’s Box…a great story about some Philly Quakers who transported a slave from the south in a wooden crate! great illustrations and happy ending in Philly!

    Also Vergie goes to school with us boys! another great read aloud about education in the slave driven south.

    Love the Site Janice!

      Absolutely! These are great read-alouds, both based on our nation’s fascinating history. Thanks for mentioning them. I’m glad you like my blog, Kathy. For the rest of March, I’ll be featuring heroines, real and imagined, in honor of Women’s History Month. Stay tuned!
