We are pleased to introduce our Recommended Reading partnership with the Winnipeg Public Library!
Showcasing quarterly Recommended Reading titles from the Winnipeg Public Library catalogue specifically curated for children under the age of 10, these feature blog posts will help foster a love of literacy and are a perfect way to keep your children’s book lists fresh.
All titles are available at the Winnipeg Public Library.
A favourite classic is Read Me A Book by Barbara Reid. This board book is a celebration of the pleasures of reading aloud anywhere, anytime.
My Heart Fills With Happiness by Monique Gray Smith is another beautiful board book that invites everyone to reflect on all the little things in life that bring us joy.
We Are In A Book by Mo Willems is part of the hilarious Elephant and Piggie series. In this adventure, Elephant and Piggie realize they are in a book and discover the thrill of “being read”; but, what will happen when the book ends? It’s up to Piggie to find a happy solution!
The Not So Quiet Library by Zachariah Ohora is a celebration of reading and libraries wrapped up in a raucous adventure. Oskar and his bear Theodore can’t wait for Library Day; until they have to come to the rescue when a monster barges into the library expecting an all-you-can-eat buffet!
The little animals in Make Way For Readers by Judy Sierra can’t wait for story time. Miss Bingo (the flamingo!) is a storyteller extraordinaire who uses stories, rhymes, songs, and stretches to get the most fun out of reading.
Finally, in This Is Not A Picture Book by Sergio Ruzzier, Duck is a little dismayed to discover the book he has found contains no pictures. No pictures!!! Can you imagine? But soon enough, Duck and his friend Bug discover that imagination and the joy of reading go hand in hand, and that they LOVE this book.
You can find all these titles and more at Winnipeg Public Library. For other great titles, check out the I Love My Library Booklist.
