Every Child a Reader!

Children’s Book Week is May 1 – 7

How better to instill the joy of reading than to begin when your child is young? Rocky River Public Library is the perfect starting point. Come in and discover a great collection of board and toy books that will get you going. These books are perfect for babies and toddlers because they are constructed of heavy cardboard and can easily be manipulated with small hands. They contain simple words and illustrations that are easily recognizable for the very young.

Toy books or moveable books have the added attraction of flaps or moveable features that hide illustrations underneath. These are great books for toddlers, who are more experienced “readers” that will find the hidden features more surprising and enjoyable.

Both of these types of books are shelved in the Children’s Department on the 2nd floor. Stop by the Library and make your child a reader!

Some new board and toy book titles include:


Dig Dig Digging by Margaret Mayo


Dogs! by Dr. John Hutton


Happy Bug Day by Michael Dayton Hermann


Honk Honk! Beep Beep! by Daniel Kirk


Baby’s Very First Touchy-Feely Animals Book by Stella Baggott
