This week, the new titles on our Butler Bookshelf celebrate individual journeys and the things that make us all unique. In Circle Round, a counting picture book, readers are encouraged to welcome new friends of all types. In Set Me Free, Mary Lambert travels to a manor house outside Boston to teach a young deaf girl how to sign, healing her own relationship with her deafness in the process. In Aristotle and Dante Dive into the Waters of the World, the sequel to a well-loved teen novel, young lovers Aristotle and Dante must discover what it means to build a relationship together, long after the initial infatuation has passed.
