Dark Was the Night: Blind Willie Johnson's Journey to the Stars By Gary Golio

Beautiful watercolors are used in this biographical picture book to tell the story of Blind Willie Johnson, one of the most iconic blues musicians to have ever lived. Using the little information we have on Johnson’s life, author Golio tells his own story to Johnson—leaving the reader feeling as though they have peeked into an intimate conversation describing the impact Johnson’s music would someday have on the world.

Your Place in the Universe by Jason Chin

It’s easy to feel small in this wide and ever expanding universe, especially when you’re not yet very tall. This book gives readers a great sense of scale and upholds our place in the universe. Chin has a knack for taking large and complex concepts and making them accessible to everyone. The art is so detailed it’s easy to feel like the illustrations are real. This is a great book for science-minded kids, but everyone could benefit from the greater understanding it provides. —Ivy
