The young people seemed to be the place we were concentrating this week in the new book department.

The non-fiction young people section has some new titles, “What’s the Big Deal About Elections” by Ruby Shamir; “I Voted: Making a Choice Makes a Difference” by Mark Shulman; “One Vote, Two Votes, I Vote, You Vote” by Bonnie Worth; and “Right this Very Minute: a table-to-farm book about food and farming” by Lisl H. Detlefsen.

New young people biographies are “Shirley Chisholm is a Verb” by Veronica Chambers; “Immigrant Architect” by Berta de Miguel; and “Who Was Mister Rogers” by Diane Bailey and “Hello, Neighbor” by Matthew Cordell, two books about Mr. Rogers, the America television personality, musician, puppeteer, writer, producer and Presbyterian minister.

New junior easy books are “Federico and the Wolf” by Rebecca J. Gomez; “Red: a crayon’s story” by Michael Hall; “The Invisible Boy” by Trudy Ludwig; “Ronan the Librarian” by Tara Luebbe; “Zero” by Kathrun Otoshi; and “Knot Cannot” by Tiffany Stone. Some of them are for fun and some have a message.

Junior fiction titles new to us are “Eight Princesses and a Magic Mirror” by Natasha Farrant; “A Place at the Table” by Saadia Faruqi; “Oathkeeper” by Erin Hunter, number six in the Bravelands Series; “Music for Tigers” by Michelle Kadarusman; and “Dog Man” Grime and Punishment” by Dav Pilkey, another in the popular Dog Man series.
