That "23pt" is the old way of setting size.  staffsize=23 is the new
way.

If you don't want it in the lilypond-book file, you don't need to --
just delete
the 23pt.

Hmm... I'm not certain that I understand exactly what the problem is.

There are three ways to set the size of these songs.  Pick one:
1)  Inside each song.ly file, include
#(set-global-staff-size 23)

2)  Inside each song.ly file, include
\include{global.ly}

global.ly has:
#(set-global-staff-size 23)
and possibly other things.  The advantage to this method is that you
can easily change the settings of everything at once.

3)  Inside the everything.lytex file, do this
\lilypondfile[staffsize=23pt]{song1.ly}
for all 38 entries.  Not recommended.  :)

I hope that clarifies things,
- Graham
