New Library Books in AUGUST

The library could cater better for our youngsters.

Now four attractive, thought-provoking children’s books are added. For the very youngest, One Love (Cedella Marley, Vanessa Brantley-Newton) combines Bob Marley’s song with lively illustrations and the message of a multi-ethnic community transformed by a child’s love. The Day War Came (Nicola Davies, Rebecca Cobb), which is dedicated to ‘children who are lost and alone and to those who help them’ and endorsed by Amnesty International, movingly invites us to imagine the plight of a child torn from home and school by war. A bleak and difficult journey as an outsider ends with the precious gift of a chair, symbolising a welcome in school and a fresh chance in life. Potentially distressing, this book may be best read with an adult.

For independent readers two compelling texts tell the stories of inspirational leaders and changemakers, past and present. Young, Gifted and Black (Jamia Wilson and Andrea Pippins) introduces ‘52 black heroes from past and present’, celebrating their achievements and showing how their early years and dreams influenced them. Rebel Voices: The Rise of Votes for Women (Eve Lloyd Knight, Louise Kay Stewart) celebrates the women in many countries who rebelled against societal norms and fought to gain those rights and choices taken for granted by men.
