Up! : how families around the world carry their little ones by Susan Hughes( Book )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 503 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Around the world, little ones are carried in many different ways: in slings, on shoulders, in backpacks, on hips, in baskets, and in loving arms. Up! depicts ten places around the world, from Afghanistan to northern Canada, Peru to West Africa. In each place, a mom, dad, grandparent, aunt, uncle, cousin, or sibling lovingly carries a baby. With various family configurations and settings ranging from a busy outdoor market to a high-rise apartment kitchen, the book wholeheartedly celebrates diversity. Gorgeous cut-paper collage art adds warmth and brightness, and brings the lyrical text to life. Repetition of the phrase "Upsy-daisy" on each spread lends familiarity, and reminds readers that love for a little one is a universal feeling."--

"Ellie believes that she will live in her little village on the coast of Nova Scotia for always. But when her father gets a job on Sable Island, she must say farewell to her beloved home and her mother's final resting place. Not even the idea of seeing the wild horses that roam the island can ease her pain of leaving. And after arriving on the sandy, windswept crescent of land, Ellie feels adrift and alone ... until one afternoon when she wakens on a dune to find herself looking into the curious eyes of a wild stallion. Little by little, as the days pass, Ellie gets closer to the beautiful chocolate-colored horse. Yet she soon discovers something that could take him away from his home, his herd, and her.

What happens next by Susan Hughes( Book )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Advanced picture book told through first-person narrative and graphic novel style panels. What Happens Next is a raw, realistic story told by an unnamed protagonist who feels different from everybody else, like she doesn't quite fit in. Bullied by a girl at school, our narrator gives a terse script of the related facts and emotions. At school the next day, the narrator confronts the bully by spinning her "weirdo" obsession with science into an opportunity to find common ground, and maybe help the bully see the world in a new way. Spare illustrations in a limited palette of blues and greens convey feeling alone even in the hustle and bustle of a crowded schoolyard."--
