I Could Do That!

Book Cover from BN.com

Linda White

“I could do that,” says six-year-old Esther as she watches her mother making tea. Start her own business at the age of nineteen? Why, she could do that, too. But one thing Esther and other women could NOT do was vote. Only men could do that. This striking picture book biography shows how one girl’s gumption propels her through a life filled with challenges until, in 1869, she wins the vote for women in Wyoming Territory — the first time ever in the United States!

Grade Level: 3-7
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Leonardo the Terrible Monster

Book Cover from BN.com

Mo Willems

Leonardo is truly a terrible monster-terrible at being a monster that is. No matter how hard he tries, he can't seem to frighten anyone. Determined to succeed, Leonardo sets himself to training and research. Finally, he finds a nervous little boy, and scares the tuna salad out of him! But scaring people isn't quite as satisfying as he thought it would be. Leonardo realizes that he might be a terrible, awful monster—but he could be a really good friend.

Grade Level: PreK-2
