    Not Quite Snow White by Ashley Franklin

One day she sees her school is putting on a musical of Snow White and thrills at the idea of getting the starring role. During auditions, however, Tameika hears her classmates saying negative things about her body type and skin color. Tameika is discouraged and wonders if the other kids are right. Later that night, Tameika finds reassurance in her parents, who lovingly deliver one of the many "talks" African American parents have with their children regarding dealing with racism and discrimination. Using language which encourages hope, body positivity, and self-worth, Franklin weaves together a story which can be used discuss overcoming discrimination. Buoyant digital illustrations in candy colors reflect Tameika's outgoing personality and create a welcoming space to help young readers discuss the tough topic of race. Grades K-3.

    Sumo Joe by Mia Wenjen

    Sumo Joe Book CoverFriendly sibling rivalry sparks a face-off between the two Japanese martial art forms, sumo and aikido. Spare rhyming text introduces Japanese-American Sumo Joe as a "Strong big bro, / built for sumo," who is "gentle, though." Japanese terms, printed in boldface on first occurrence, are seamlessly incorporated into the text, explaining different aspects of sumo. An author's note and glossary also provide extended cultural notes on both martial art forms, including sumo's origins in Shinto. With a saturation of ninja/ninjutsu books in the market, this is a refreshing new take on the martial arts genre. Young readers will enjoy this spirited debut with insightful integration of cultural exploration. (Picture book. 3-6) Copyright Kirkus 2019 Kirkus/BPI Communications. All rights reserved.
