The best in this good are Ara and Chicano Jr.
Ara is about STEM and is girl centered. It includes several women of color and is about problem solving.
Chicano Jr. actually is dual language and tries into the current immigration debate.
Where Would Santa Go and Sticky the Elf are standard Christmas fair. The Santa book does get points for a blended and multi-racial family. The Creepy Pumpkin Patch is an good Halloween book.
Ben Adventures is an interesting book about triplets, though I found the artwork to be better than the story.
Civil War Heroine - is written so both adults and children can get something out of it. It is an interesting brief history of an interesting woman.
The Squire of Low Degree - good retelling of the fourth book of Spenser's Queene. Would also work if you need a gloss.
