A Place Where Sunflowers Grow
Written by Amy Lee-Tai and illustrated by Felicia Hoshino
Mari and her family are interned in a camp in the Utah desert during World War II. Mari enrolls in an art class and plants sunflower seeds, but it seems impossible that anything beautiful could survive in a place where nothing beautiful grows. Somehow, glimmers of hope begin to surface in the eyes of a kindly art teacher, the tender words of Mari’s parents, and the smile of a new friend.


June 10
Written by Jonah Winter and illustrated by Ana Juan
This book traces key experiences in Frida Kahlo’s life, like her loneliness as a child, the polio that kept her bedridden for months and a horrific bus accident. Ultimately, Frida found refuge in art-making, where she told her story using symbols and images from both her life and her imagination
