Summary

* "A nuanced exploration of human nature." --Booklist, starred review 
 
* "For fans of Patrick Ness and Lauren Oliver, this is a must buy." --SLJ, starred review 
 
When the Vasquez siblings' father left, it seemed nothing could remedy the absence in their lives . . . until a shimmering figure named Luz appeared in the canyon behind their house. 
  
 Luz filled the void. He shot hoops with seventeen-year-old Hank's hands. He showed fourteen-year-old Ana cinematic beauty behind her eyelids. He spoke kindly to eight-year-old Milo. But then Luz left, too, and he took something from each of them. As a new school year begins, Hank, Ana, and Milo must carry on as if an alien presence never altered them. But how can they ever feel close to other people again when Luz changed everything about how they see the world and themselves?  
 
In an imaginative and heartfelt exploration of human--and non-human--nature, Leah Thomas champions the unyielding bonds between family and true friends.

    This is Bob Books bestselling first reader, introduced more than 35 years ago and used by millions of children. If your child knows the alphabet, Bob Books Set 1 is the book to start him or her on the path to reading.
     
    
     
    Many early readers contain words that are too difficult for a child who has just learned the sounds of the alphabet. Not these books! Using only the letters M, A, T and S, children can read their first book. New letters are added gradually, until all letters of the alphabet have been introduced (except Q). Short vowels and three-letter words in simple sentences help kids build reading confidence. They love the stories and funny pictures, and can't wait to read them to everybody they know.
