I’ll Hold Your Hand

I'll hold your hand
I’ll hold your hand

This sweet picture book celebrates the unbreakable bond of a parent’s support for a child though life’s milestones, from learning to walk to the first day of school and all the highs and lows in between.

From the night you arrive to your first night away,
from learning to crawl to healing a broken heart,
and for all the highs and lows in between. . .
through every season, every challenge, and every joy, you are loved.

With sweet, lyrical text from Maggie C. Rudd and stunning art by Elisa Chavarri, I’ll Hold Your Hand celebrates the unbreakable bond of family, and all the ways our actions can say “I love you” louder than words.

“A laugh-out-loud tour de force.” —Kirkus, starred review

Ever wish you had a way to magically solve all of your problems? The kids at Hopewell Elementary School might have exactly what you’re searching for–just walk down the hall and stop at Locker 37. This highly illustrated series is a fun and accessible read, perfect for reluctant readers looking for a little magic!


In the first book of the Locker 37 series, Carson Cooper realizes that he has a very inconveniently located stain on his pants. That is NOT the way to start things off on the first day of school. Fortunately, Carson finds a letter written by last year’s fourth graders stuck to the bottom of his desk with some watermelon bubble gum. The note explains the existence of Locker 37, which will provide a solution to any problem! And when Carson sneaks off to the locker it does, indeed, provide a solution–an eraser! But the problem is that the eraser works a little too well, erasing anything it’s rubbed against three times. ANYTHING.
