Millbrook Press Announces Two New Picture Books Featuring Diverse Animal Families and Haiku by Richard Wright

MINNEAPOLIS, MN— Enjoy two exceptional new picture books from Millbrook Press, a division of Lerner Publishing Group, this spring! Millbrook Press publishes award-winning, informational picture books and photo-driven titles for young readers, including the 2017 Orbis Pictus Honor Book Dazzle Ships by Chris Barton, with illustrations by Victo Ngai.

What kind of families do animal babies have? All different kinds! Learn about some of the animal kingdom’s many unique families in Laura Purdie Salas’s Meet My Family! Animal Babies and Their Families. With charming text and sweet illustrations by Stephanie Fizer Coleman, this picture book introduces a wolf pup cared for by the pack, a young orangutan snuggling with its mother high in a tree, a poison dart frog tadpole riding piggyback on its dad, and many more animal families.

In Seeing into Tomorrow: Haiku by Richard Wright, Nina Crews brings together twelve haiku by acclaimed African American writer Richard Wright alongside her distinctive photocollages. The artwork celebrates the lives of contemporary black boys, with a focus on everyday moments such as walking a dog, flying a kite, and playing with friends. The book also includes tips for young writers who want to give haiku writing a try. In a starred review, Kirkus Reviews called Seeing into Tomorrow a “loving, welcoming introduction to one of the most important American writers of the 20th century.”
