The Great American Dust Bowl by Don Brown 

Call Number: Juvenile Nonfiction Graphic 978.022 Bro


This nonfiction graphic novel depicts the causes of the Dust Bowl that took place in the American Midwest during the 1930s, or the Dirty Thirties as it would come to be known. The devastating effect upon the land and the people who lived there are conveyed by the stark illustrations. This graphic novel proves that a picture can often convey more than words. The catastrophic results of people interfering with nature are quite obvious but The Great American Dust Bowl avoids becoming preachy. The novel is a good read at any time, but it may be especially illuminating to children who are studying the environment.

Fly Away by Patricia MacLachlan

Call Number: Juvenile Fiction MacLachlan


Fly Away is another great story from Patricia MacLachlan. Lucy and her family are taking a car trip to visit their Aunt Frankie and help her at the farm as they prepare for a potential flood. This is a sweet story about Lucy, a young girl trying to find her special place in her family. All her family likes to sing, but Lucy can't. Instead, she likes poetry. She has a special relationship with her baby brother who doesn't talk yet. This is a nice story for early chapter book readers.

Are you looking for a way to get rid of unused toys while also getting in some charitable giving?

 

The Youth Services department is looking for donations of new or gently used Full-Sized Historical American Girl Dolls to start an educational circulating collection of dolls that would encourage an interest in local history.  Once acquired, the dolls will be bundled with accompanying American Girl doll books as well as historical information about Cherry Hill and New Jersey during a particular era. We have a particular interest in the Rebecca, Addy and Julie dolls. Dolls can be brought to the Youth Services Department or shipped to:

Cherry Hill Public Library
1100 Kings Hwy North
Cherry Hill, NJ, 08034
Attn: Youth Services

 

Help us bring history alive by donating a doll!
