It's summer, and Sunny is BORED. Most of her friends are out of town. Her mom wants her to baby-sit way more than Sunny wants to baby-sit. There's nothing good on TV.
The only place that's cool (in a not-boring sense) and cool (in a not-hot sense) is the community pool. Sunny loves going there . . . and loves it even more when she's offered a job at the snack shack. Soon she's flinging fries and serving soft ice-cream like a pro . . . with the assistance of the very sweet boy who works with her.
Sunny's mom isn't sure Sunny should be quite so independent. But Sunny is definitely sure: Life is best when it's free swim.

Starred Review, Kirkus Reviews:
"Sweet, funny and superb."
Starred Review, Booklist:
"Just the right mixture of knowingness and hope . . . a hilarious blend of family drama seasoned with a dollop of adventure."
School’s out for summer, and Penny and her cousin Frankie have big plans to eat lots of butter pecan ice cream, swim at the local pool, and cheer on their favorite baseball team—the Brooklyn Dodgers! But sometimes things don’t go according to plan. Penny’s mom doesn’t want her to swim because she’s afraid Penny will get polio. Frankie is constantly getting into trouble, and Penny feels caught between the two sides of her family. But even if the summer doesn’t exactly start as planned . . . things can work out in the most unexpected ways!
Set just after World War II, this thought-provoking novel also highlights the prejudice Penny’s Italian American family must confront because people of Italian descent were “the enemy” not long ago.
Inspired by three-time Newbery Honor winner Jennifer Holm’s own Italian American family, Penny from Heaven is a story about families—about the things that tear them apart and the things that bring them back together.
Includes an author’s note with photographs and background on World War II, internment camps, and 1950s America, as well as additional resources and websites.
“Holm impressively wraps pathos with comedy in this coming-of-age story, populated by a cast of vivid characters.”

A New York Public Library Best Book for Kids, 2016
Grown-ups lie. That’s one truth Beans knows for sure. He and his gang know how to spot a whopper a mile away, because they are the savviest bunch of barefoot conchs (that means “locals”) in all of Key West. Not that Beans really minds; it’s 1934, the middle of the Great Depression. With no jobs on the island, and no money anywhere, who can really blame the grown-ups for telling a few tales? Besides, Beans isn’t anyone’s fool. In fact, he has plans. Big plans. And the consequences might surprise even Beans himself.
Return to the wonderful world of Newbery Honor Book Turtle in Paradise through the eyes of Turtle’s cousin Beans!

Con una buena dosis de humor, en El pez número catorce propone a sus lectores observar con atención, desconfiar de las apariencias y, por encima de todo, reflexionar sobre si lo posible es siempre lo más deseable.
A Ellie no le gustan nada los cambios. Echa de menos la escuela primaria, a su mejor amiga Brianna e incluso a Nemo, el pez que había sido su mascota durante años.
Un día, su madre, que es profesora de teatro en el instituto, llega a casa con un chico muy raro. Viste como un adulto y se comporta como un gruñón y un cascarrabias. Pero lo más llamativo es que, por increíble que parezca, se asemeja mucho a Melvin Sagarsky, el abuelo de Ellie, un científico que ha dedicado todo su esfuerzo a estudiar el envejecimiento humano.
¿No será que ese adolescente desgarbado es en realidad el abuelo Melvin? ¿Es posible que haya descubierto el secreto de la juventud eterna?
Ganadora de tres Menciones de Honor Newbery, Jennifer L. Holm invita a los niños a asomarse al mundo de la ciencia de forma amena y accesible.
