Hello Lighthouse by Sophie Blackall

The masterful art and writing of Caldecott Medal winner Sophie Blackall makes Hello Lighthouse a delight all the way through. Imagining the life of a keeper of a lighthouse, we tend the light, trim the wick, and write letters to a distant wife—who arrives then by ship! Brimming with seaside joy, foggy warnings, and even a shipwreck, this picture book is one I would have loved dearly as a child and do as an adult. One of my favorite books of the year. Ages 3–7. - Tera

Otis and Will Discover the Deep written by Barb Rosenstock illustrated by Katherine Roy

Two inquisitive and determined scientist-adventurers carve a path to the depths of the ocean in this true story of the invention of the bathysphere. The water pressure at 7 miles deep makes observation all but impossible, but in 1930 Otis and Will conducted a series of precarious dives and unlikely engineering that resulted in the first vision of hidden depths. Gorgeous panoramic illustrations and edge-of-your-seat storytelling make this a truly fun ride for young adventurers. Ages 5–8. - Tera

Winnie's Great War written by Lindsay Mattick & Josh Greenhut; illustrated by Sophie Blackall

Winnie-the-Pooh was based on a real bear (as many of us know), but this version of her story is unspeakably charming and deftly retold. Winnie is rescued after her mother dies, and is brought up by a thoughtful boy, then by a veterinarian who takes care of the horses being transported to wartime Europe. Sensitive Winnie wants nothing but to make everyone around her laugh at her antics. We can’t help but feel and hope for her safe return to the woods of Canada. Like Charlotte’s Web or Bambi, this read-aloud book will enchant and transport every listener. Grades 3–6. - Tera

A Life in Pattern by Orla Kiely

Known for her distinct graphic style and charming color palettes, Orla Kiely truly has lived a life in pattern. In this, her third publication, we get a fascinating look into her career in fashion and home design, starting with her ever-popular “stem” design that she made right in her apartment living room back in 1995. A fine book for those inspired by graphic design or the recent history of female entrepreneurship. - Megan

Ninth Street Women by Mary Gabriel

Mary Gabriel set out to illuminate the lives and legacies of five female American artists who changed history while being overlooked by it, and through these women brings viscerally to life a New York–centered world of the last century. The relationships, famous names, wars, social movements, and above all, the art in Ninth Street Women will leave you inspired, looking up paintings, and holding onto the names Lee Krasner, Elaine de Kooning, Grace Hartigan, Joan Mitchell, Helen Frankenthaler, and Mary Gabriel. - Jocelyn

In Pieces by Sally Field

Unlike some celebrity memoirs that focus on art and fame, actress Sally Field’s memoir is much more personal, and includes her life before she was famous. She reveals that as a child, she was sexually abused by her stepfather and talks about how that shaped her decisions regarding her partnerships, which roles she took, and even how she mothered. As an artist, she was drawn to the roles that “spoke of outrage,” but in writing her memoir, you can feel the connection that Field has found with herself. - S.M.C.

I Might Regret This by Abbi Jacobson

Abbi Jacobson (of Broad City fame) set off on a solo road trip from New York City to Los Angeles in an impulsive attempt to shake off heartache from a breakup. This quietly introspective and sweetly self-deprecating essay collection brings readers along on Jacobson’s cross-country trek and shows us that we’re never too old to figure out who we are. The raw honesty and startling vulnerability of this book took me by surprise, inspiring me to take stock of my own path. - Kelly

Unsavory Truth by Marion Nestle

Is chocolate heart-healthy? Does yogurt prevent type 2 diabetes? Do pomegranates help cheat death? News headlines bombard us with such amazing claims. They are reported as science and have dramatic effects on what we eat. In her new book, food expert Marion Nestle (Food Politics, What to Eat), explains how these studies are more about marketing than science, why it’s time to put public health first, and what we can do to make that happen. “Marion Nestle is a national treasure. She has the courage to take on multinational corporations and the wisdom to separate the facts from the spin.” ―—Eric Schlosser, author of Fast Food Nation

Red Moon by Kim Stanley Robinson

Given Robinson’s pedigree, there was little doubt I would like this book. If you enjoy intrigue and action in the low gravity of our closest neighbor, Red Moon will draw you in. Despite the lightness of the setting, it pulls its weight. Similar to last year’s Artemis. - Ian

Transcription by Kate Atkinson

While World War II isn’t my usual era of interest, Juliet’s hilarious inner monologue about everything that happens around her won me over. There is espionage and intrigue, and twists and turns emerge where you least expect them. I can see the 1940s so clearly, thanks to Atkinson’s fantastic writing. This is a book that will be a hit for a lot of different kinds of readers: people who like historical fiction, mystery, or literary fiction. - Karena
