Staff Picks: Books

Staff-recommended reading from the KPL catalog.

Who can they tell?

Learning to Swim: a memoir pulled at my heart strings! All of us would prefer not to have to talk about child abuse. But it is something that is eating away at our society and we can not ignore it.

The reality is that child abuse is a prevailing monster that grows with silence. Ann Turner does an excellent job of conveying a child’s anxiety of wanting to tell and the fear of telling.

This memoir might help a child speak the unspoken words.

Sounds like a really good book for me to pick up. I volunteer at a youth ranch in California. Some of the guys here could probably really relate to a story like this one. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
Hi! Child abuse is a very complex problem which may have multiple causes. In order to understand the cause of child abuse it is very important to identify the problem which is being faced by the child. The victims of child abuse need emotional support and special attention and care from their parents and we should not forget that children represent our future. I think that a positive outlook to child's safety will definitely ensure this. With Regards Amrita
It will be a great book for sure.
