A. Sydney gets a warm reception
Sydney, the star of The Year of the Sheep, is springing ahead to win readers over.

The latest in our annual series Tales from the Chinese Zodiac,

is a featured book at the Chinese American Museum in Marysville, CA, which the New York Times recently profiled.

Sampan newspaper wrote "Tales from the Chinese Zodiac delight the eyes and heart. [The] tenth tale, The Year of the Sheep, is no exception, with beautiful artwork and an inspirational message."

B. Julie Black Belt meets Bruce Lee
Julie takes a kung fu class after school, inspired by her movie star heroine Brandy Wu. She learns more than she expected about the sport and herself!

An action-packed adventure, Julie Black Belt is a fan favorite and its sequel followed in 2013.

The Wing Luke Museum in Seattle, WA featured a Julie Black Belt: The Belt of Fire storytime on March 21st with their popular Bruce Lee exhibit.

The Oregonian newspaper wrote:
"Lee is still venerated around the world and his grave in Seattle's Lake View Cemetery is likely the most visited grave in the state of Washington. The Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, simply known as the Wing, is presenting 'Do You Know Bruce?', a new exhibit on the global martial arts and cultural icon. The exhibit runs for three years and likely will be the most-attended exhibit in the five-year history of the Wing."

Julie is pleased to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with this legend and support the mission of the Wing Luke!

C. The Wild World of David Derrick
Geek Mom enthusiastically recommended Dave's collection of storybooks:

"With a three-year-old who considers roaring his first language, and a five-year-old with a penchant for cosplay, we are happily enjoying the books of author David Derrick. Whether portraying an animal debate as to who is the scariest thing in the jungle, or showing a defiant boy pretending to be every animal under the sun, he really engages my boys' imaginations. If you are looking for a new author to explore in the wake of Read Across America Day, look no further than the wild world of David Derrick."

The Octonauts and the Sea of Shade
By Meomi

"This is a sweet story with the same characters as the television show...The underwater spaces in the book are much more creative and fantastic than the cartoon. Some of what is underwater in the book looks like it is really above water, but the pictures are beautiful and the story is so creative. I loved reading the story and seeing more basics of the characters than you get in the television show."

Good Dream, Bad Dream
By Juan Calle and Serena Valentino

"Uniquely Universal: Searching for Stories that Celebrate Diversity: Great stories can transcend language and cultural barriers and tap into human emotions and experiences that we share as members of the human family. I've been searching for stories that celebrate cultural diversity in the everyday events of family life. I recently ran across an action packed bilingual bedtime story that did just that while strengthening the bond between a father and son."
