Win it Wednesday: Where do Speedboats Sleep at Night by Brianna Caplan Sayres

Ahoy there! Have you ever wondered what little speedboats do when it's time for bed? The same things you do! Cruise ships, canoes, fishing boats--and more!--wash up, have a snack, stow their teddies for storytime, and get "docked" to sleep by mommies and daddies, once the tides calm.

Win it Wednesday: Some Places More Than Others by RenĂ©e Watson

All Amara wants for her birthday is to visit her father's family in New York City--Harlem, to be exact. She can't wait to finally meet her Grandpa Earl and cousins in person, and to stay in the brownstone where her father grew up. Maybe this will help her understand her family--and herself--in new way.

But New York City is not exactly what Amara thought it would be. It's crowded, with confusing subways, suffocating sidewalks, and her father is too busy with work to spend time with her and too angry to spend time with Grandpa Earl. As she explores, asks questions, and learns more and more about Harlem and about her father and his family history, she realizes how, in some ways more than others, she connects with him, her home, and her family.

Congratulations Julie D.! You are our latest Win it Wednesday winner!

Win it Wednesday: Chomp, A Shark Romp by Michael Paul

Many different kinds of sharks are swimming below the ocean's surface.

Some sharks are gentle, and some sharks are fierce. Some are awake in the day, and some are awake at night. Some eat almost anything, and some are very picky.

You may not be able to visit their watery world, but you can always visit them up close at the aquarium.

Congratulations Patricia M., you are our latest Win it Wednesday winner!

Tristan Strong feels anything but strong ever since he failed to save his best friend Eddie when they were in a bus accident together. But on his first night at his grandparents' farm, a sticky creature shows up in his bedroom and steals Eddie's notebook. When Tristan chases after, he finds himself in the middle of a battle that has left black American folk heroes John Henry and Brer Rabbit exhausted. In order to get back home, Tristan and these new allies will need to entice the god Anansi to come out of hiding. Can Tristan save this world before he loses more of the things he loves?
