And Then the Seed Grew Written and illustrated by Marianne Dubuc

A story of growth and change (and tomatoes!). In an ordinary garden full of flowers and plants, some creatures have made their homes above the ground, while others live below it. Everybody lives happily. Until one day, a new seed arrives, which sprouts into a plant. And as the plant grows (and grows, and grows), its stalk and leaves get in the way of those who live aboveground, while its roots disrupt those who live below. It is a huge problem. So, the garden’s residents decide that it must be chopped down. Unless … wait! What’s that growing on the plant? A multilayered (and multilevel!) tale that’s worth digging into! MARIANNE DUBUC is an award-winning author and illustrator of many books for children, including The Bus Ride, Lucy and Company and Mr. Postmouse’s Rounds. Her work has been translated into more than thirty languages around the world. Marianne lives in Montreal, Quebec. Curriculum Links: Language Arts — Picture Books.

Life in the wild can be a bit … unexpected! Just the way kids love it!

Meet the Group of Seven Written by David Wistow and Kelly McKinley / The Art Gallery of Ontario

A beautiful introduction to Canada’s famous artists. In 1920, a group of Toronto artists exhibited their work together for the first time. They called themselves the Group of Seven. Their paintings were very different from the art of the time. Some people were excited by their unique styles, and some were horrified. It took years for their work to be fully appreciated. But today, the Group of Seven are some of Canada’s best-loved artists. Here’s a must-have reference to the artists who changed the landscape of Canadian art forever. Educator and artist DAVID WISTOW is an interpretive planner emeritus at the Art Gallery of Ontario. He is also the author of several books for adults, including Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven. He lives in Toronto, Ontario. KELLY MCKINLEY is a Canadian art museum educator who now works as the deputy director at the Oakland Museum of California. She has spent almost 30 years crafting programs that nurture a love of art and museums in people of all ages. She lives in San Francisco, California.

Most importantly, the five friends learn ways to use less — including just saying NO! Ages: 4 to 7 • Grades: Pre-K to 2 4-color • 10” x 8 ½” • 32 pages

Megabugs And Other Prehistoric Critters That Roamed the Planet Written by Helaine Becker • Illustrated by John Bindon

Meet some gigantic prehistoric critters! A bug the size of a small crocodile? Or as large as a basketball player? As scary as it seems, supersized, insect-like creatures such as these roamed Earth long before humans.

It explores when, where and how they each lived, why they grew so big and what caused their eventual extinction. Kids will never look at bugs the same way again!

THE HIVE

Written by Barry Lyga and Morgan Baden

Cassie McKinney has always believed in the Hive. Social media used to be out of control, after all. People were torn apart by trolls and doxxers. Even hackers — like Cassie’s dad — were powerless against it. But then the Hive came. A better way to sanction people for what they do online. Cause trouble, get too many “condemns,” and a crowd can come after you, teach you a lesson in real life. It’s safer, fairer and perfectly legal. Entering her senior year of high school, filled with grief over an unexpected loss, Cassie is primed to lash out. Egged on by new friends, she makes an edgy joke online. Cassie doubts anyone will notice. But the Hive notices everything. And as her viral comment whips an entire country into a frenzy, the Hive demands retribution. One moment Cassie is anonymous; the next, she’s infamous. And running for her life.

Luckily, there’s still one team left in town … The boys’ team isn’t exactly welcoming, but Michigan’s prepared to prove herself. She plays some of the best hockey of her life, in fact, all while putting up with changing in the broom closet, constant trash talk and “harmless” pranks that always seem to target her.

ALWAYS SMILE A tribute to the life and legacy of extraordinary teen Carley Allison. Not long ago, seventeen-year-old Carley Allison had it all. She was on the edge of fame as a singer and composer. She was reaching for the highest levels as a competitive skater. She had a new boyfriend and a golden future waiting after graduation. Her world came crashing down when she was diagnosed with a rare kind of cancer in her trachea. Her case, doctors said, was one in 3.5 billion. Faced with an uncertain new future, Carley rose to the challenge. Cancer treatment tested her, but she remained fearless and strong. Carley died before her twenty-first birthday, but her memory lives on in the countless people she touched with her courage. Bestselling author Alice Kuipers weaves their stories with the blog Carley kept in the final months of her life. These many voices — plus plenty of Carley’s texts and photos — show her transformation from ordinary to extraordinary, and convey her personal rules for living well in the worst of times.
