Hongying hold her book pick in front of bookshelves

Hongying from the Pablo Creek Regional Library recommends Kitchen Science Lab for Kids by Liz Lee Heinecke, "a fun book for parents who want to spark the curiosity and creativity in science in their kids. Kids are introduced to acids and bases, physics in motion, rocket science, polymers, life science and microbiology with 52 family-friendly, hands-on experiments. And you can find all the materials for the enrichment from around the house!"

Alex from the Main Library's Teen Department recommends Erika L. Sánchez's novel I Am Not Your Perfect Mexican Daughter. "I love how this book explores loss of identity, and coming of age during a difficult time in one’s life. "

Leona sitting at a work desk holding her book pick

Leona from the University Park Branch recommends The Girl Who Fell From the Sky by Heidi W. Durrow, which she calls a "captivating and moving novel."

Aquilla standing in front of bookshelves with her book pick

Aquilla from the Brentwood Branch recommends The Warrior Method: A Parents’ Guide to Rearing Healthy Black Boys by Raymond A. Winbush. "Today’s society is different because there is an increase of hate crimes. This is a great book/program designed to help young black boys become strong, self-reliant, independent men."
