I've been reading a lot of books lately, trying to collect ideas for this summer's theme, "One World, Many Stories." In today's video post, I wanted to share five good stories about diverse people and places.
If any of these sound interesting to you, check them out in the ACLA catalog:
1. Bad News for Outlaws: The Remarkable Life of Bass Reeves, Deputy U.S. Marshal by Vaunda Micheaux Nelson with illustrations by R. Gregory Christie
2. Thunder from the Sea: Adventure on Board the HMS Defender by Jeff Weigel
3. Brother William's Year: A Monk at Westminster Abbey by Jan Pancheri
4. She Loved Baseball: The Effa Manley Story by Audrey Vernick with illustrations by Don Tate
5. The Fantastic Adventures of Baron Munchausen: Traditional and Newly Discovered Tales of Karl Friedrich Hieronymus von Munchausen by Heinz Janish with illustrations by Aljoscha Blau and translated by Belinda Cooper
