Come and check out these and some of the other new books and materials (or at least new to us) for younger and juvenile readers added to our library collection…

EASY READING:

Fishing Sunday by Tony Johnston and pictures by Barry Root

My Mom Is My Show-And-Tell by Dolores Johnson

Happy Belly, Happy Smile by Rachel Isadora

Berkeley’s Barn Owl Dance by Tera Johnson and illustrated by Tanie Howells

The Incredible Book Eating Boy by Oliver Jeffers

This is the story of Henry, a young boy who enjoys books immensely, but in a different way from the rest of us. Henry enjoys eating books. And the more books Henry eats, the smarter he gets. This is a fun book, and a nice celebration of reading, and it’s great for younger readers, and a treat for the adult who enjoys reading with them. Check out a review at Inis magazine.

Grandma’s Hands by Dolores Johnson

FICTION:

Doctor Proctor’s Fart Powder: Who Cut The Cheese? by Jo Nesbo and illustrated by Mike Lowery

Adam Of The Road by Elizabeth Janet Gray

The Whole Story Of Half A Girl by Veera Hiranandani

The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis

The Voyages Of Doctor Dolittle by Hugo Lofting

Color Me Dark: The Diary Of Nellie Lee Love, The Great Migration North by Patricia C. McKissack

Eleanor, Crown Jewel Of Aquitaine by Kristiana Gregory

The Great Railroad Race: The Diary Of Libby West by Kristiana Gregory

B. Aster And The Warrior Eggs At The Earth’s Core! by William Joyce

Chanticleer And The Fox, adapted from Geoffrey Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, and illustrated by Barbara Cooney

A nice adaptation of the story of the Chanticleer and the Fox, from “The Nun’s Priest’s Tale” in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. Cooney was awarded the Caldecott Medal in 1959 for illustration for this book, and I really like her philosophy about children’s literature, as displayed in what she said when she accepted her award: “I believe that children in this country need a more robust literary diet than they are getting. …It does not hurt them to read about good and evil, love and hate, life and death. Nor do I think they should read only about things that they understand. ‘…a man’s reach should exceed his grasp.’ So should a child’s. For myself, I will never talk down to, or draw down to, children.”

NON-FICTION:

Forest Explorer: A Life-Size Field Guide by Nic Bishop

City Alphabet by Joanne Schwartz and illustrated by Matt Beam

This is an absolutely beautifully designed book, and a nice introduction to younger readers to pleasure of exploring the immediate world around them, to see the words and language that surround them. Check out this great interview with the author and illustrator.

She’s Been Working On The Railroad by Nancy Smiler Levinson, with photos collected and taken by Shirley Burman

Lena Horne by Leslie Palmer

Women Of The U.S. Congress by Isobel V. Morin

The Story Of Noah’s Ark, retold by Margrit Haubensak-Tellenbach and illustratedy by Erna Emhardt

100 People Who Made History: Meet The People Who Shaped The Modern World by Ben Gilliland

A good starter book for learning about a variety of historical figures, and told with some very vibrant images. Here’s a nice review from Juno magazine.

Sharks! Strange And Wonderful by Laurence Pringle and illustrated by Meryl Henderson
