World of Wonders

DUE IN AUGUST: World of Wonders by Aimee Nezhukumatathil left me buzzing with joy! A brown girl raised among white people, Nezhukumatathil can relate to many of animals featured in this collection of short essays, who, like her, have contrived wondrous adaptations to get along in surroundings that can be less than welcoming. Her poet's eye, irrepressible spirit, and unquenchable love of nature bestow previously untold riches. Highly recommended by Kelly.
