The Land of the Cranes by Aida Salazar

Babita knew that one day she, Papi, and Mami would fly to El Norte like the cranes, then “bad men could not harm them, and Abuelita would not worry.” Years later in the US, Papi is swept up in an ICE raid. When Babita and Mami are held in detention, Babita uses her picture stories to help her family find one another. This powerful novel in verse is affirming for immigrant children and those wanting to grow their worldview.  
— Noreen

Stamped: Racism, Antiracism, and You: A Remix of the National Book Award–Winning Stamped from the Beginning by Jason Reynolds & Ibram X. Kendi

A comprehensive book that brings to light what some have tried to erase from our history. This is a must-read for all ages, powerfully honest and compelling from start to finish.—Shannon

This book should be required reading for everyone. Jason Reynolds is a genius: He takes a complex issue (the history and modern-day manifestations of anti-Black racism in the US) and makes it accessible for any reader. I love the emphasis on how to be actively antiracist. Also a great choice for adults daunted by the 608-page original! —Stephanie
