Librarian’s Grab Bag: What Angela is Reading

This summer I have been singing, reading, and when possible I sing as I read.
Here is a trio of books I have been working through: a middle grade novel about gender identity, an autobiography of a heroine of mine and a picture book you can sing! Enjoy.

Lily and Dunkin

Lily Jo McGrother, born Timothy McGrother, is a girl–but being a girl is not so easy when you look like a boy. Norbert Dorfman, nicknamed Dunkin Dorfman, is bipolar and has just moved from the town he’s called home for the past thirteen years; this would be hard enough, but the fact that he is also hiding from a painful secret makes it even worse. One summer morning, Lily Jo McGrother meets Dunkin Dorfman, and their lives forever change.

Singing in the Rain

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