Isn't It Scary  by Vernon Hamilton

This picture book follows two African-American children as they learn about the natural habitats of animals, and connect each to the comfort and security of the children’s own home and family.

Travis and Rosa are in a suburban park with their mother when they see a small rabbit disappear into a hole. The kids peer into the hole as far as they can see, and then one child says, “Isn’t it scary?”  Mom assures the children that the rabbit is very comfortable and safe in its home.

Isn’t it Scary?  follows the family as they encounter several animals in the park. Travis and Rosa see rabbits, squirrels, frogs, fish, deer, birds, and bats.  They learn that every creature is adapted and suited to its own special environment.  NOW ON SALE HERE: https://www.acmit.com/book/9781480889163

Description


“A haunting portrait of families, human and otherwise, torn apart. . . . Hartnett combines powerful prose with magical realism.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

When the Germans attack their Romany encampment during World War II, Andrej and his younger brother, Tomas, flee through a ravaged countryside under cover of darkness, guarding a secret bundle. Their journey leads to a bombed-out town, where the boys discover a hidden wonder: a zoo filled with creatures in need of hope. Like Andrej and Tomas, the animals — wolf and eagle, monkey and bear, lioness and seal, kangaroo and llama — have stories to share and a mission to reclaim their lives.
