Below are lists of great children’s books to get you started. Whether reading them for the first time or rediscovering favorites, these books are certain to become as cherished as an old friend. Read them for your own pleasure, or share them with someone you love. And remember, imagination has no limits!
Early literacy does not mean early reading instruction or teaching babies to read; it is the natural development of skills through the enjoyment of books, the importance of positive interactions between babies and parents, and the critical role of literacy-rich experiences.
Literacy development begins at birth and is closely linked to a baby’s earliest experiences with books and stories. Babies learn language through social literacy experiences – parents interacting with them using books. These experiences also serve to associate books with parental affection, attention, and approval.
Listen, Read & Watch
Some vendors require you to go through a one-time registration process. It always involves your library card number. It sometimes involves your library PIN and/or your email address.
If you need help, ask a librarian! And remember that we offer personal eReader instruction by appointment with the Reference Desk.
Can kids get library cards, too?
Bronxville children of any age can receive a library card. The age at which they get a card is at the discretion of their parents. All that is required is a parent’s/guardian’s identification showing proof of address and their signature on the application form. Click here for more information.
Do adults need to stick around?
Parents or caregivers are responsible for their children’s behavior. Parents or caregivers may not leave a child under the age of 9 unattended at any time and must make arrangements to pick-up older children at closing.
