My Name Is Sangoel - Karen Lynn Williams, Khadra Mohammed, Catherine Stock

Sangoel is a Sudanese refugee. He leaves his homeland with little besides his name, which has been handed down from generation to generation. When Sangoel arrives in the United States he feels confused and homesick. Joining the soccer team at his new school helps, but still, no one can pronounce his name. Tired of repeating My Name Is Sangoel (Eerdmans, $17), Sangoel has an ingenious idea to help his new friends say—and remember—his name. This book was written by Karen Lynn Williams (Galimoto) and Khadra Mohammed and illustrated by Catherine Stock (Galimoto, Gugu’s House). Ages 5-8. HWP

Let's Do Nothing! - Tony Fucile

If you’ve played all your board games, read all your comic books, painted pictures, baked cookies, and played every sport invented, you’ll know how Frankie and Sal feel when they proclaim, “Let’s Do Nothing!” (Candlewick, $16.99). But doing nothing—not moving—isn’t as easy as the boys thought. Frankie’s imagination always seems to get the better of him: pigeons land on him when he’s a statue in the park; when he’s a redwood, Sal’s dog comes by and relieves himself. Finally Sal realizes something about the nature of doing nothing. Feature film animator Tony Fucile captures the essence of childhood boredom and creativity in this entertaining first picture book. Ages 4-7. HWP
