My Rainy Day Rocket Ship
Markette Sheppard & Charly Palmer

Free bookplate autographed by illustrator Charly Palmer with purchase.

Rainy summer days are no match for a little astronaut who builds the perfect rocket ship for an indoor space adventure to another galaxy, where the sky is his only limit!

A stormy afternoon and an order from Mom to stay inside are no match for this little dreamer, who uses everyday household items--a rocket chair, a cardboard box, an old dish rag, and a super-duper imagination--to whip up a trip around the universe he won't soon forget.

My Rainy Day Rocket Ship is a high-spirited, engaging salute to the imagination of Black boys who use their beautiful minds to transform the mundane into the extraordinary, dream out loud, and boldly go where their sky is the only limit.

★ An alarmingly relevant book that mirrors current events. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Demonstrating the power of protest and standing up for a just cause, here is an exciting tribute to the educators who participated in the 1965 Selma Teachers' March.

Reverend F.D. Reese was a leader of the Voting Rights Movement in Selma, Alabama. As a teacher and principal, he recognized that his colleagues were viewed with great respect in the city. Could he convince them to risk their jobs--and perhaps their lives--by organizing a teachers-only march to the county courthouse to demand their right to vote? On January 22, 1965, the Black teachers left their classrooms and did just that, with Reverend Reese leading the way. Noted nonfiction authors Sandra Neil Wallace and Rich Wallace conducted the last interviews with Reverend Reese before his death in 2018 and interviewed several teachers and their family members in order to tell this story, which is especially important today.

There's a Dragon in My Closet
Dorothea Taylor & Charly Palmer

The dragon in the closet is such a con: one minute he's dancing like a goof under sheets and leaving "get well" notes and peppermints when little ones are sick, and the next he's tracking dirty footprints all over the carpet and eating all the snickerdoodles out of the cookie jar. With him around, there's always lots of fun--and a whole heap of trouble, especially when he goes invisible, leaving a little boy to answer for his bad behavior.

Colorful illustrations bring to life this adorable tale of a kid who blames sweet surprises and mischievous behavior on an invisible, mysterious guest only he knows exists: the friendly, goofy, troublemaking dragon in his closet. But did the dragon really do it?

There's a Dragon in My Closet is a funny, engaging salute to mischievous little boys and the imaginary friends that sprinkle giggles and create a few pickles on even the most ordinary days.
