2019 Bluestem Nominees!
Have you read any of the 2019 Bluestem Books?
20 books for grades 3-5 are nominated every year for the Bluestem Award, and they are displayed in the Youth Services Department.
Take a look at our staff review for this week’s featured book!

Title: Game Changer
Author: John Coy
Pages: 32
Lexile level: NC1170L
Recommendations & Comments: Today, you see people of varying ethnicities and cultures playing basketball together, but back in 1944, this was not the case. That might seem so long ago to kids. However as an adult, that isn’t a very long time at all. Reading this story will help children understand the relatively short timeline of change that has occurred over the past 75 years. We still need more change to happen and maybe this book can help it to continue.
