Kids' Picture Books
Children's picture books are filled with wonder. Magical things happen on their pages. A picture book can be a place where a child learns right from wrong and learns values such as kindness and honesty. Picture books can make a child laugh out loud (a parent, too) but they can also be educational. Children's picture books can be the foundation of literacy. Reading with a child is one of the great pleasures of parenting, because picture books provide a unique connection between child and adult imagination.
The library has a New Kids' Picture Books list on the New, Best & Fun page tabbed on our catalog. It has a wonderful selection of titles. Some, like Building Our House by Jonathan Bean, help children understand how things work. Others, like The Perfect Hug by Joanna Walsh, are more about how we feel. Browse the list, place holds on books that interest you, and visit the library to see what delightful new books are on the shelves today.
