Once upon a time there was a brave little library up on a hill in Vermont… and now it has a children’s book collection! On the top floor at the end of the hall between the 800s and the 900s you will now find a small but growing collection of board books, picture books, and chapter books for kids. We picked out some of our favorites and we’re hoping you will love them too.
While we welcome the youngest members of our community to come check out the collection we also encourage college students, staff and faculty to curl up with a favorite book from childhood like Laura Ingalls Wilder’s Little House in the Big Woods, or Robert McCloskey’s Blueberries for Sal. You can also explore children’s literature that might relate to your current studies. Taking Chinese? Try In the Snow by Huy Voun Lee. Writing a paper on the natural sciences? Take a look at Around the Pond: Who’d Been Here? by Lindsay Barrett George. Interested in Africa? Get the flavor of Kenya by reading Mama Panya’s Pancakes by Mary and Rich Chamberlin.
Of Course the best way to discover treasures in the Children’s collection is to browse through the books that are there. Have fun and let us know what you think!
