Everybody's Story

Book of the Week

The Everybody’s Story Children’s Library will highlight a book selection each week from the library. This book will be placed on the book shelf for all to see and check out.

This week’s selection is The Day You Begin by Jacqueline Woodson.

About the book: There are many reasons to feel different. Maybe it’s how you look or talk, or where you’re from; maybe it’s what you eat, or something just as random. It’s not easy to take those first steps into a place where nobody really knows you yet, but somehow you do it.

Jacqueline Woodson’s lyrical text and Rafael López’s dazzling art reminds us that we all feel like outsiders sometimes-and how brave it is that we go forth anyway. And that sometimes, when we reach out and begin to share our stories, others will be happy to meet us halfway.

A #1 New York Times Bestseller.
