WHY PICTURE BOOKS ARE IMPORTANT

A picture book is…

  • The best way to fall in love with books. –Susan Hood
  • A gateway to the wonders of the universe. –Julie Hedlund
  • A toolkit for growing up. –Emma Watson Hamilton
  • AND so much more!

A picture book is often a child’s first introduction to the wide worlds of literature AND art. They help young readers build self-confidence and an understanding of themselves and the world, provide kids a safe place to explore complex concepts, and strengthen visual and critical thinking skills. They play an irreplaceable role in early childhood while providing families opportunities to grow together and create special memories to last a lifetime. Picture books are something to celebrate—and we’re doing just that in honor of Family Literacy Month this November!

Help us celebrate by bringing in your favorite picture books for a fun and eclectic evening story time! Enjoy a variety of treasured picture books read aloud then use your imagination and creativity to design your very own mini book!

For ages 0–5. Just drop in!
