A Children’s & Teen Librarian’s Grab Bag

The great thing about being a Children’s & Teen Librarian is checking out new material each day. In the past few months, I have been able to read great fiction, poetry, books in song and books with opportunities to howl. I can safely say it’s a job perk to have access to diverse books that I can share with the readers around me. If you are one of those people “just looking for a good book”, take a look at this grab bag of book suggestions for age 0-99!

All Out

No-longer-secret stories of queer teens throughout the ages.

Ghost Boys

A heartbreaking and powerful story about a black boy killed by a police officer, drawing connections through history, from award-winning author Jewell Parker Rhodes. Only the living can make the world better. Live and make it better. You can also check out this title as eAudio on OverDrive/Libby or as eBook on OverDrive/Libby.

Little Wolf's First Howling

Little Wolf can hardly wait. Tonight he will howl at the moon to the top of the sky. First, Big Wolf demonstrates traditional howling form: AAAAAAAAAAOOOOOooooooooo. Then it’s Little Wolf’s turn. He’s sure he is ready, but when the big moment comes, something happens. Something unexpected, something wild, something unbe-beep-bop-believable! Sisters Laura McGee Kvasnosky and Kate McGee have created a wonderful story about the importance of doing things your own way and being true to your heart when it swells with wildness and joy.

Singing in the Rain

A picture book adaptation of Singing in the rain, a song which celebrates the glory of rainy weather.
