We’ve had a couple of assignments that students have brought in where they needed to find picturebooks along various themes. Many are emotional picturebooks. Some titles are repeated if they fit under more than one category. Picture books are normally designed for 3 to 7 year olds or 4 to 7 years olds. These children’s books are available at the Cedar Rapids location, but can be requested to be sent to any center at any time.

If you’re working on a project, but don’t see your subject or a particular title you’re looking for, ask at the desk and we’ll see what children’s literature we can find. For on-going projects we can also order titles to support them if you let us know.

We’ve updated the list for Spring 2017. If you’re still having trouble finding what you want, stop at the reference desk and ask.
