“Verde’s unique style and simple yet increasingly important messages of peace, mindfulness, and community make her stories a must-share...A must-purchase.” —School Library Journal (starred review) “Walls do not just create barriers and divide spaces. They can be canvases for artmaking; opportunities to shape a community.” —The Horn Book “This story of urban renewal sends a welcome double message by Verde: neighbors and neighborhoods are more than the way they look, and ordinary people can band together to transform big things.” —Publishers Weekly A boy takes on a community art project in order to make his neighborhood more beautiful in this empowering and inspiring picture book by Susan Verde, stunningly illustrated by award-winning artist John Parra. One creative boy. One bare, abandoned wall. One BIG idea. There is a wall in Ángel’s neighborhood. Around it, the community bustles with life: music, dancing, laughing. Not the wall. It is bleak. One boy decides to change that. But he can’t do it alone. Told in elegant verse by Susan Verde and vibrantly illustrated by John Parra, this inspiring picture book celebrates the power of art to tell a story and bring a community together.

See below for English description. Comment pouvons-nous changer les choses? Il faut une première graine pour faire naître un jardin, une première note pour créer une mélodie, une première brique pour faire tomber les murs. Chaque mouvement et moment de changement part d'un but, d'une intention, d'une personne. Encore une fois, Peter H. Reynolds présente un magnifique album contenant un puissant message. Cette oeuvre encourage chaque lecteur à faire entendre sa voix, à tendre la main et à faire un premier pas vers la création d'un monde meilleur. Elle prouve qu'il suffit d'une seule personne pour faire de grands changements. Un livre à lire encore et encore. What would you do if you knew it only took one step? One seed to sow, one stroke to start a masterpiece, one note to start a melody. If it seems like a difficult task to make a difference, think again! Because all it takes is one. One action, one word, one hug, and most importantly, one YOU! Once again, Peter H. Reynolds brings us a beautifully illustrated picture book with an equally beautiful message. Magnificent illustrations accompanied by an uplifting message make this a picture book to pick up time and time again. Young readers are encouraged to believe in their potential to change the world. At the end of the book, you will find a guided mediation and self-reflection activity. Original title: I Am One: A Book of Action

  When I see a work of art, something happens in my heart! As a little girl tours and twirls through the halls of the art museum, she finds herself on an exciting adventure. Each piece of art evokes something new inside of her: silliness, curiosity, joy, and ultimately inspiration. When confronted with an empty white canvas, she is energized to create and express herself-which is the greatest feeling of all. With exuberant illustrations by Peter H. Reynolds, The Museum playfully captures the many emotions experienced through the power of art, and each child's unique creative process. Praise for The Museum "Verde and Reynolds deliver a simple premise with a charming payoff. this "twirly-whirly" homage to a museum is, on balance, a sweet-natured and handsome celebration." -Kirkus Reviews "Debut author Verde makes an engaging case for understanding art as an experience rather than an object." -Publishers Weekly "The rhymed text captures the excitement of a being sparked by art." -Booklist "Communicates a fresh, playful, childlike perspective on art and normalizes childlike responses to it. The idea that posing, laughing, and curious questions are all appropriate museum behavior may be a new one for both children and parents, and knowing this is sure to make for more enjoyable museum visits." -School Library Journal "For parents who have trouble communicating the excitement of art to their children, The Museum can serve as the starting point for a conversation. The book is also a wonderful reminder of visual art's power to encourage and empower self-expression. Children and adults will finish this book excited about their next art experience, and perhaps tempted to dance through the halls of a museum in the near future." -Bookpage "This playful picture book pays tribute to the joyous effect art can have on the viewer." -Shelf-Awareness

Boys love sneakers. But when a child finds that his toes have outgrown his favorite shoes, and they’ve gotten too dirty and smelly, his mom says it’s time for a new pair. Resistant to let go, the boy reminisces about all the good times he’s had with his favorite kicks on the city streets. There’s the paint splatter from his masterpiece and the drip from a Popsicle. There’s the scuff from when he fell off his skateboard. And there are those frayed laces that he learned to tie in bows and doubles. A new pair just won’t be the same. But, with bigger shoes to fill, the boy realizes new adventures await him. Maybe he could paint a little better? Or skate a little faster? This new picture book from the bestselling author of I Am Yoga explores the love and pride that kids have for their sneakers and the joy that can be found in growing up, growing out, and moving on.

Based on supermodel Georgie Badiel’s childhood, a young girl dreams of bringing clean drinking water to her African village With its wide sky and warm earth, Princess Gie Gie’s kingdom is a beautiful land. But clean drinking water is scarce in her small African village. And try as she might, Gie Gie cannot bring the water closer; she cannot make it run clearer. Every morning, she rises before the sun to make the long journey to the well. Instead of a crown, she wears a heavy pot on her head to collect the water. After the voyage home, after boiling the water to drink and clean with, Gie Gie thinks of the trip that tomorrow will bring. And she dreams. She dreams of a day when her village will have cool, crystal-clear water of its own. Inspired by the childhood of African–born model Georgie Badiel, acclaimed author Susan Verde and award-winning author/illustrator Peter H. Reynolds have come together to tell this moving story. As a child in Burkina Faso, Georgie and the other girls in her village had to walk for miles each day to collect water. This vibrant, engaging picture book sheds light on this struggle that continues all over the world today, instilling hope for a future when all children will have access to clean drinking water.
