Did you know that our picture book section is sub-divided into categories based on our most frequent patron requests?
GROWING UP (GROWING E, BLUE SPINE LABELS): Picture books about childhood changes and life lessons. This section encompasses typical childhood firsts like starting school, learning to use the potty, welcoming a new baby brother or sister, as well as books on more difficult subjects like aging grandparents, moving, divorce, or the loss of a pet
TRANSPORTATION (TRANSP E, RED SPINE LABELS): Covers all your favorite books about things that go-- from cars, trucks, diggers, and dumpers, to trains, planes, boats, and bikes
CONCEPTS (CONCEPT E, YELLOW SPINE LABELS): Books about early learning concepts, such as colors, days of the week, body parts, shapes, opposites, numbers, and the alphabet
NATURE (NATURE E, DARK GREEN SPINE LABELS): Fact-based picture books about animals, plants, and our environment
SEASONS (SEASONS E, PALE GREEN SPINE LABELS): All about the four seasons-- look here for books about spring rain, fireflies, those beautiful fall leaves, and your friendly neighborhood snow-people
EASY FOLK AND FAIRY TALES (EASY J 398.2, LAVENDER SPINE LABELS): Our folk and fairy tales are alphabetized by title and tale for easy browsing-- i.e., all versions of the Cinderella story from around the world are shelved together
MOTHER GOOSE & NURSERY RHYMES (EASY J 398.8, DARK PURPLE SPINE LABELS): From "Hey Diddle, Diddle" to "Pat-a-Cake," these are the familiar verses that have been passed from parent to child for generations
