Meet Miss Devin at Lexington Branch!
"I have many favorite children’s authors, but if I had to pick just one it would have to be David Shannon. His stories are funny and his illustrations are amazing. In the No, David series you can actually feel David’s emotions through his many facial expressions. Duck on a Bike was a favorite for both of my children, and I actually enjoyed reading it over and over and over. I have perfected the voice for each animal, and it has become one of my favorites to read aloud."
"Art has always been my favorite subject. It is a wonderful way to express yourself, and there is always something new to discover when you are creating. It also helped me prepare for all the crafts, displays and bulletin boards that I would create here at the library."
Miss Devin would like to recommend these juvenile audiobooks!
The Original Adventures of Hank the Cowdog by John Erickson
Read by John Erickson
Recommended for ages 8 to 11
Any of the Hank the Cowdog audiobooks are fun to listen to. The author and narrator John Erickson is a former cowboy and has a ranch in Texas so his accent for Hank is dead on. Listening to these books is a hilarious way to entertain the whole family on a long car trip. So if you’re in the mood to laugh, lace up your boot straps and check out Hank the Cowdog…yeehaw!
The Giver by Lois Lowry
Read by by Ron Rifkin
Recommended for ages 10 & up
The Giver is an iconic book, and is soon to be a movie. The narrator does a great job conveying the emotions of each character in the audiobook. It is a story about Jonas, a young boy who seems to live in a perfect society. There is no crime, no poverty and no color. Everyone is designated a job at twelve. When Jonas is assigned his new job his perfect world starts to unravel as he learns hidden truths about his family, his past and everyone’s future.
