NetGalley ARCs/Mini Reviews: April 23

I received four ARCs from NetGalley this week!

Mara the Space Traveler by An Leysen (Clavis Publishing)
Release Date: June 20, 2020
4/5 Stars
This is a lovely story about a young girl helping out some creatures in another realm. The illustrations in this book are beautiful, and the creatures in Mara’s tale are so adorable!

A Journey Toward Hope by Victor Hinojosa Coort Voorhees
Six Foot Press
Release Date: July 7, 2020

5/5 Stars

A Journey Toward Hope tells the story of four children migrating to America, leaving their homes and surroundings in order to live a more peaceful life. The children’s stories are fictional, yet the authors provide an accurate account of the harrowing conditions migrant children experience while making the journey to North America.

The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen (North South Books)
Release Date: September 1, 2020

4/5 Stars

An emotional account of The Little Mermaid, filled with raw emotion and harsh conditons. Hans Christian Andersen is never known for lighthearted accounts of fairy tales, and this story is no exception!

Chinatown Pretty: Fashion and Wisdom from Chinatown’s Most Stylish Seniors by Andria Lo & Valerie Luu (Chronicle Books)
Release Date: September 22, 2020

5/5 Stars

I loved looking through the images of Chinatown’s older generation! Andria Lo & Valerie Luu set out to reconnect with their heritage through this project by making contact with their older peers. I feel like we can all learn something from this experience!
