Library Love!

Picture books that share our love of libraries

September is Library Card Sign Up Month -- so if you don't have a library card, this list should inspire you to sign up for one here! It was a struggle to pick just a few picture books about the magical place that is a library! Most of these books play on the imagination factor that allows children (and adults) to dream and play in a new world through reading and books! We know that reading is awesome, and hopefully some of these reads will help you to find your way to the library!

Chalk by Bill Thomson

Imagination Exploration!

Picture books that encourage imagination!

When I was a kid, I would spend lots of time creating worlds in my head and acting them out with my Barbies and assorted toys. I eschewed my Barbie Dream Car in favor of using my shoes as Barbie cars. Unfortunately for my parents, I drew all over the walls - creating a visual display of everything in my brain. I once pulled out all my stuffed animals, pillows, and blankets and created a soft floor for my bedroom. My poor parents had no reproach for my crazy and wild imagination. They had created the monster by making me a voracious reader!

Revenge of the Witch

Chilling Chapters

Scary stories for older children

Sunny June isn't exactly the ideal setting for a scary story, but that's precisely when I like reading a good horror story. Nowhere for long shadows or weird noises to hide in the sun! No matter when you like a scare, these chapter books are some of my all time favorites.   Revenge of the Witch by Joseph Delaney
