Tough Like Mum

Author: Lana Button
Illustrator: Carmen Mok
Publisher and Year: Tundra Books, 2021
Synopsis: Kim's mum is tough. Everyone says so. Kim is tough, too. She doesn't need to wear a hat to keep her ears warm. And she can make soup all by herself, even without the stove. But Kim is learning that sometimes toughness doesn't look like what you'd expect. In this tender exploration of a mother-daughter relationship, Kim and her mother learn that in order to support and truly take care of each other, they need to be tough -- and that sometimes being tough means showing vulnerability and asking for help.

Raj's Rule for the Bathroom at School

Author: Lana Button
Illustrator: Hatem Ali
Publisher and Year: Orca Books, 2020
Synopsis: Raj has one rule: he never uses the bathroom at school. It’s just not the same as the one at home. All day, he avoids bathroom trips and lives by these tips: Stay away from anyone who makes you laugh. And sit still: no running, jumping, cartwheels, or sneezing. Until one day—achoo!—Raj has to break his own rule. After he faces his fear and uses the bathroom at school, Raj doesn’t have to rush! He can try new things, laugh, explore … even enjoy his work. He can stay awhile and play. Raj discovers things are better if you just go when you need to. Told in speech bubbles with bright, lively art showing a diverse group of kids, this is a riotous rhyming read-aloud with an empathetic take on facing a common fear.
