BOOK BUZZ

Praise for Soaring Kite Books

DMLA Front Cover Image.jpg

“As the mother cuddles, feeds, and plays with her young child, readers experience a full day through its eyes. This picture book’s rhythmic language is as comforting as the swaying of a loving mother’s arms; a sweet lulling, naptime read. Subtle touches like 'I lift up my sleep sack...' make this addition to the new baby genre feel fresh and modern.”

"'My brain is magic!'— [a girl] shares examples, often using animal-connected metaphors.“Sometimes my brain is a bee, buzzing around the room,” as she flits from her rocking horse to her toys to a display of flowers. The book maintains an upbeat tone and approach throughout, while encouraging appreciation for the myriad ways brains can function in a kid-friendly, playful fashion."

"Abuela’s dance moves lead the way: “One step…Two steps…And jump as we turn!” Flavored by their childhoods in the Dominican Republic, Mack and Mesa’s collaboration buzzes with sweet warmth. As the young nighttime dancer strains to listen, Abuela shares a dreamlike truth that will linger with readers. An evocative and earnest nighttime reverie."

"The young Korean girl who narrates eats kimchi every day. However, her diet is far from monotonous. She eats it fried, stewed, in a roll, on noodles, and more, displaying the versatility of this traditional dish. A delicious read-aloud and perfect recommendation for every child,

any day of the week."

Rainbow Letters Cover Image.png

“Looking down from a candy-colored world, the 'rosy-cheeked and sparkly-eyed' children... write letters to convey their happiness, bring parents peace, and remind rainbow babies that they have loving siblings watching over them. With few picture-book reflections of pregnancy and infant loss, this warmhearted title is welcome. ”

“This adorable board book series teaches toddlers new concepts through the stylings of Latin American music. Cumbia addresses manners, including please and thank you, but most importantly how to respect others’ boundaries and asking/giving consent. Merengue introduces kids to the sounds of the different instruments most commonly played in that genre. These volumes have so many uses, but even more fun, they’re perfect for a dance party! ”

"The first entry in the “Holidays in our Home” series features an unnamed brother and sister celebrating Lunar New Year. The older brother has crocheted a special dragon as a gift for his meimei (Mandarin for younger sister) and keeps trying to find the right time to give it to her amid the festivities. Traditions such as red envelopes, paying respects to ancestors, fireworks, and the lion dance are all thoroughly explained. 

Recommended for larger collections or those that need books about Lunar New Year.'"

"Zain usually loves the Ramadan holiday, but everything feels different this year. He and his parents recently moved to a new neighborhood, and there is no local mosque, nor other families nearby who celebrate like Zain does. Though he feels disappointed, Zain takes matters into his own hands and creates a Ramadan celebration his own way. This addition to the “Holidays in Our Home” series is a heartfelt and detailed book to share with all children, whether or not they celebrate Ramadan themselves."
