Summer 2023 Books for Young People

What do Mother Goose parodies, the silence of some people with autism, an unexpected big inheritance with strings attached, and a girl with superfighting powers have in common? These are all books recommended for summer reading by Carol Roberts, Young People’s Services librarian at Troy Public library. Carol also mentions some of the many activities coming up, such as papermaking, meeting live lizards, and more. Books discussed: “The Real Dada Mother Goose: A Treasury of Complete Nonsense” (Jon Scieszka , 2022); “A Day With No Words” (Tiffany Hammond, 2023); “The Inheritance Games” (Jennifer Lynn Barnes, 2020); and “Graceling: The Graphic Novel” (Kristin Cashore, 2021).
