The Clothesline by Orbie; Karen Li (Translator)This is a story about a little boy who lives above a convenience store with his mom. When he goes to spend his pocket money on candy--only when Mom's not looking--he gives the knot on the clothesline by the outdoor stairs a good yank (it makes the best sound). One day, he tugs a little too hard, and takes the stairs a little too fast, and--whiiiiiz!--gets stuck hanging smack in the middle of the clothesline. He cries for help, but Mom doesn't hear. He waits for someone to save him, but only a black cat slinks by. His arm gets tired--but if he hangs on with both hands, he'll risk dropping his coins! It's a true dilemma.

When Aidan Became a Brother by Kyle Lukoff; Kaylani Juanita (Illustrator)When Aidan was born, everyone thought he was a girl. His parents gave him a pretty name, his room looked like a girl's room, and he wore clothes that other girls liked wearing. After he realized he was a trans boy, Aidan and his parents fixed the parts of life that didn't fit anymore, and he settled happily into his new life. Then Mom and Dad announce that they're going to have another baby, and Aidan wants to do everything he can to make things right for his new sibling from the beginning--from choosing the perfect name to creating a beautiful room to picking out the cutest onesie. But what does "making things right" actually mean? And what happens if he messes up? With a little help, Aidan comes to understand that mistakes can be fixed with honesty and communication, and that he already knows the most important thing about being a big brother: how to love with his whole self.
