Poe Dameron, Vol 1
Star Wars: Poe Dameron, Vol. 1: Black Squadron - Charles Soule,Phil Noto

I read the first issue of Poe Dameron a while back and it didn't really interest me. Having seen Ep XI now, I was more interested in his previously established back story. Since this run is now complete, I thought I'd give it another try since I really want to like Poe but the movies made it so difficult to actually like him.

Colors of Confinement
Colors of Confinement: Rare Color Photographs of Japanese American Incarceration in World War II (Documentary Arts and Culture) - Eric L. Muller,Bill Manbo

A fascinating insider's look at Heart Mountain internment camp in Wyoming. I first looked at all the images and then went back and read the essays (the last one was dry and didn't hold my attention, so I didn't finish it). I found it helpful to have an idea of the scope and subjects of the images when reading the essays. Some background knowledge of the history of Japanese people in America and their internment during WWII will probably enhance the reading experience of this book, though this isn't a bad place to start learning about internment either.

Jabari Jumps
Jabari Jumps - Gaia Cornwall

The illustrations really work with the story to show how high the diving board is and how scary it can be. They also do a great job showing Jabari’s dad’s support and the fun Jabari has once he conquers his fear. Jabari Jumps is definitely a new favorite of mine.

One - Kathryn Otoshi

The design of this picture book is clever with the colors and words corresponding in the text and then corresponding to their place within the word count when they transform into numbers. It contains a great lesson on acceptance and standing up for yourself. Ultimately though I thought I would enjoy it more than I did, so it gets three stars.

Two of Everything
Two of Everything - Lily Toy Hong

I thought this silly folktale might have a stronger moral about greed or generosity. Perhaps the original moral of the tale became lost in the adaptation. The story is still entertaining particularly the exaggerated expressions of Mr. and Mrs. Haktak throughout, but an author’s note containing the original tale would have been appreciated.
