Troy Books for Kids for September

Hear about three books for kids that explore different perspectives on history, ancient art, and animals. The picture book “Tell Me a Story Babushka” has a Ukranian grandmother describing to her daughter the horrors of the 1932 Holodmor famine in Ukraine (Schmidt, ill. Barghigiani; 2022). “Ancestory” shows pictures of ancient rock carvings and paintings from around the worls, with background information and glossary (Salyar, 2023). “What Animals Want: The Five Freedoms in Action” encourages readers to consider the needs of non-humans from the anmals’ perspectives, and offers tips for taking action to improve the lives of pets, farm animals, and wild animals(Pearce, 2021). Recommended by Carol Roberts, head of Young People’s Service for Troy Public Library.
