Lil’ Libros Bilingual Baby Board Books
by Patty Rodriguez and Ariana Stein

“These books were written by a pair of childhood friends who grew up, became mothers, and found that there were no bilingual ‘first concept books’ … and so they created the solution for the need that they had … [and] it’s a way of introducing culture and art to very little people’s lives."

- Gail O'Neill

I am Jane Goodall (Ordinary People Change the World)
by Brad Meltzer and Christopher Eliopoulos

“It’s a book that tells the story of Jane Goodall as a little girl ... You see how they became the role models that they did by following a dream, following a passion.”

- Gail O'Neill
