No More PlasticNo More Plastic by Alma Fullerton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed the use of diorama art made from plastic waste by the illustrator. It really brought the book full circle and shows how it is up to us to change and save our world. Isley is in all of us.

If OnlyIf Only by Mies van Hout
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a beautiful story that is equally beautifully illustrated. The message of this story is to show that you may look at others and wish you had what they had, but you should celebrate what makes you, you. This message is so important for our youth-to celebrate and value yourself and what makes you unique.

Our imaginations go wild when we are outside and this book celebrates and brings that experience to life. I love the lyrical format of Erin’s words and when combined with Andrea’s gorgeous illustrations make this book unforgettable.
