Troy Library: April kids’ books & activities
Celebrate April’s Earth Day & National Poetry Month, get a sneak peek at a book for May’s Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and find out about Troy Public Library’s many children’s activities from Carol Roberts, Young People’s Services librarian. Also learn about a newish poetry form (“Golden Shovel”) where the last word of each line, read down the page, join to become a new poem. Carol is talking about books with Hudson Mohawk Magazine producer Brea Barthel. Books discussed: “Hello Earth” by Joyce Sidman; “Legacy: Women Poets of the Harlem Renaissance” by Nikki Grimes; “In You I See: A Story that Celebrates the Beauty Within Us” by Rachel Emily; and “Eyes that Kiss in the Corners” by Joanna Ho.
