Something…Wait, This Is Actually Something Nice and Hopeful!

All eyes to this lovely window of the Roslindale Public Library, which is currently tricked out with books and art projects about immigrants, refugees, and kids, thanks to my excellent sister and others, who helped set it up.

She was particularly taken with the enthusiastic drawing of macaroni and cheese in the lower left, created by an inspired young person who wanted to share the type of food available in her house (I guess).

Do I know why "Sponsored by RISE, Rosindale is For Everyone" is RISE and not RIFE? I do not. But I know something wonderful when I see it.

If you're looking for more books about refugees and immigrants for kids, we've gathered some here. Though heading back to the past century, with All of a Kind Family and A Tree Grows in Brooklyn and other classics, are an excellent option as well.

I hope you are all somewhere nice and peaceful.
