Fearless Readers Recommendations for May

Uncategorized May 10, 2023

Greetings, Fearless Readers!

I am thrilled to celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month with you. 

I am excited to share the inspiring story of my dear friend, Hanh Bui, who has just published her first book, "The Yellow Áo Dài." This heartwarming story explores themes of family, identity, and remembering those who came before.

Hanh's journey is a testament to the strength of the human spirit. As a child, she and her family fled war-torn Vietnam in search of safety and a new beginning. Inspired by her experiences and the lack of representation in literature, Hanh became a teacher and worked to provide her students with books that reflected their diverse experiences.

"The Yellow Áo Dài" is the culmination of Hanh's efforts, and it is a book that every reader can enjoy and learn from. Join me on my blog to learn more about Hanh's journey, her book, and the importance of representation in literature.

Let's celebrate Asian Pacific American Heritage Month together by honoring and recognizing the contributions and achievements of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans. Don't miss this opportunity to expand your knowledge and celebrate diversity.

 Fearless Readers also recommend a book series that will captivate and empower your children; look no further than "Emmie and Friends" by Terri Libenson. This captivating four-book box set includes "Invisible Emmie," "Positively Izzy," "Just Jasmine," and "Becoming Brianna," each following the unique journey of four girls through school, friendships, and the challenges of growing up.

 With relatable characters and universal themes of self-discovery, friendship, and perseverance, "Emmie and Friends" provides young readers with an engaging and inspiring reading experience. The series encourages children to embrace their individuality and to believe in themselves, making it the perfect addition to any child's bookshelf.

From the creative mind of Terri Libenson, the author and illustrator of the internationally acclaimed "Pajama Diaries" comic strip, "Emmie and Friends" offers a fresh and fun perspective on the complexities of adolescence. This book series will inspire and delight children and parents with relatable characters, beautiful illustrations, and empowering messages.

 To our Fearless Reader Parents, I recommend "No More Mean Girls: The Secret to Raising Strong, Confident, and Compassionate Girls" by Katie Hurley, LCSW. This book is a valuable resource for parents looking to empower their daughters with the tools they need to navigate the challenges of growing up in today's world. With practical advice and insightful anecdotes, Hurley offers guidance on everything from building self-esteem and setting boundaries to promoting mental health and fostering healthy relationships.

The book is based on Hurley's years of experience as a child and adolescent psychotherapist. It is filled with real-life examples and relatable stories that will resonate with parents and girls alike. In a world where girls are often bombarded with messages about how they should look, act, and think, "No More Mean Girls" provides a refreshing and empowering perspective on what it means to be a girl today.

This book is not just for parents of girls but for anyone who cares about raising kind, compassionate, and confident young women. Whether you are a teacher, coach, mentor, or family member, "No More Mean Girls" is a must-read. So if you are looking for a practical and inspiring guide to help raise the next generation of strong, empowered girls, this book is for you!
