Butler Bookshelf

This week, the Butler Bookshelf features We Are a Garden by Lisa Westberg Peters and Victoria Tentler-Krylov. We are eager to dive into this nonfiction picture book about how America became the diverse country it is today. It tells the history of how different races and ethic groups found their way to America. Featuring the stories of the Apache and Navajo ancestors, enslaved Africans, and the Chinese among others, this is a timely book that all children need to read!
