March Booklists


BUILDING BABY'S LIBRARY

There are many books for babies out there, so how do you know which ones are worth checking out? Here's a list of time-tested, baby-approved picture books that you and your little one will read over and over again. You also get my librarian's guarantee: these books will wear out before you get tired of them!


MARCH MAGIC

Spring is in the air and with it comes a bit of magic. Seeds begin to poke open, gardens teem with activity, birds abound. Read about these and other signs of a new season and perhaps become inspired to dance, look around, or even begin a spring garden!


JOBS PEOPLE HAVE

What do you want to do when you grow up? Explore jobs and the characters who have them in the books suggested here!


CELEBRATE DR. SEUSS

Although Dr. Seuss, whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel, wrote many insightful kids books, these three classics strike me as having the most morally significant messages for little ones to learn … Here are a few of his lesser known works for kids!


February Booklists


FINDING FRIENDSHIP

Friends are such an important part of life, here we've put together a list of great reads that celebrate best friends in children's books.


HIBERNATE THIS WINTER

Bears have it lucky, they sleep all winter and wake up again in the spring!  Here's some great reads for those looking to hibernate.


AMAZING AFRICAN AMERICANS

January Booklists


Sing Along with Books

But I can't sing! I don't remember the words! I don't know the tune!" Doesn't matter! You can sing with your kids and they won't care--in fact, they'll love it.


BEDTIME IS CANCELLED

Is bedtime in your house met with great reluctance? Enjoy this list of picture books as you discuss with your little one why the much resisted bedtime is actually quite important.


GREAT READS FOR A CLASSROOM VISIT

When you're invited to read a book to a classroom of early elementary school children the pressure is on to choose a great read-aloud story. Any of the titles on this list are sure to be a success during your next classroom visit.


EXPERIMENTING WITH SCIENCE

Would you like to perform a science experiment? After checking out these kid- and family-friendly books, my hypothesis is you and your family will have a great time learning about science together.
