George by Alex Gino

Best friends can be indispensable. This was the case for fourth-grader George, who, despite an excellent audition, wasn't given the girl's part of Charlotte in the school's production of Charlotte's Web. Contrary to her name, her boy's body, and the rest of the world's opinion, George knows undeniably that she is a girl. After courageously telling her confident, wise-beyond-her-years friend, Kelly, George is able to outwardly express the person she knows herself to be, and friends and family gradually accept George. This multi-dimensional transgendered character is one that kids will relate to, identify with, and root for. -Erica 


Phillip is never alone because his best friend, Brock, is always with him. No one else can see Brock. That doesn’t prevent the two of them from having epic adventures, until the night of the Big Fair when Brock and Phillip get separated. While Phillip pines for his missing friend, Brock is rescued by two special fairgoers. This book is filled with giggles, both in text and art, and will be a story-time favorite for anyone who ever had an imaginary friend (or thought they did). -Holly
