Melena's Jubilee: The Story of a Fresh Start
Zetta Elliott, Illustrated by Aaron Boyd.

After being sent to bed early the previous night, Melena wakes up to a new day with a song in her heart.
At breakfast she learns she has been given a €œfresh start,€ and she decides to celebrate by doing things differently for the rest of the day. Melena chooses not to fight with her brother, and shares the money she has rather than demanding to be repaid by a less fortunate friend. This story introduces children to the concept of jubilee, which stresses the important principles of debt relief, generosity, and forgiveness. Aaron Boyd€™s mixed-media illustrations are as bright and vivid as a sun-washed day.
