Youth & Teen
- Board Book (Ages 0-3)
- Play and Learning
It’s never too early to read to your baby. Even before they can focus on the pictures, they are listening to the rhythm and cadence of your voice. Reading promotes bonding between baby and caregiver and demonstrates that books are to be enjoyed. Board books are great because they are sturdy and we want babies to be able to hold, pat, and play with books without our being nervous about ripped and soggy pages. Here are a few recommendations for baby’s first books.
- Picture Book
Curiosity is a Mars Rover. This special robot was created to explore the planet Mars’ surfaces while using its built in laboratory to test the rocks and minerals of the planet to find evidence of life on Mars. This informational story communicates the details of the mission by telling the story from the rover’s point of view. Readers will enjoy learning about this mission, and can imagine what space exploration is still to come.
