Librarians Discuss Children’s Books on Latest Podcast

December 15, 2017 | Albany Made

If you’re interested in children’s literature, you’ll want to listen to the latest episode of the Albany Made podcast!

Two of our youth librarians, Christina Stenson-Carey and Stephanie Preston of our Pine Hills Branch, discuss the New York Times Best Illustrated Children’s Books list for 2017.

In this new podcast episode, Miss Christina and Miss Stephanie “book talk” a number of these notable fiction and nonfiction illustrated titles for young readers.

You’ll hear the librarians discuss On a Magical Do-Nothing Day by Beatrice Alemagna, The Way Home in the Night by Akiko Miyakoshi, and Muddy: The Story of Blues Legend Muddy Waters by Michael Mahin and Evan Turk, among several others.

If you’re still looking for holiday gifts for the children in your lives, you might want to consider these illustrated books!

(The books profiled on the podcast episode are newer, so they are making their way to the APL shelves,. You may request the titles through our online catalog.)
