In honor of the recently announced 2013 American Library Association Awards, Bozeman, Montana’s Country Bookshelf published some recommendations from a couple of youthful regulars and one staff kid.
Naya Nuki by Kenneth Thomasma, ages 9 – 12. “Based on a actual events, Naya Nuki tells the story of a young girl who is kidnapped from her tribe and forced to walk a thousand miles across the prairie to find her way home. A story of great determination and self-reliance!” —Indigo
The Fault in Our Stars by John Green, ages 12+. “There is a reason Time Magazine called this story of two 16-year-old’s who meet at a cancer support group “damn near genius.” This is Green’s best book yet.” —Seamus
Dragons Love Tacos by Adam Rubin & Daniel Salmieri, ages 3 – 5. “Perfect for kids who love dragons, and tacos. From the creators of the super silly Those Darn Squirrels, Dragons Love Tacos explores the love dragons have for tacos and the dangers of feeding them anything spicy!” —June
