New Board Books Round-Up (and Booklist!)

By Monica C. RSS Mon, July 16, 2018

Board books are an all-time favorite—ideal for babies and toddlers, just right for little hands (and mouths)—the perfect treat to share with little ones.

Here are three brand new board books that you and the children in your life will not want to miss!

Who?: A Celebration of Babies written by Robie H. Harris; illustrated by Natascha Rosenberg
This sweet board book that explores the relationships babies form with the people and things they love the most. The text's repetitive verse and melodic voice will captivate babies and toddlers while drawing them into the sounds and images of the book.




Black Bird Yellow Sun by Steve Light
As a solitary black bird wings its way through the day, little ones are treated to a magnificent flight from one vibrant color to another.






Penguin on a Scooter written by Caspar Babypants; illustrated by Kate Endle
Meet a roller-skating bunny, a disco-dancing filly, a penguin on a scooter, and other playful animals in this silly and adorable board book from indie collage artist Kate Endle and children’s music star Caspar Babypants.




But, wait, there’s more—make sure to check out our Board Book Booklist for additional recommendations!

Do libraries donate books to day care centers? If so my center can use some.

Hi Sheena -- Thank you for your comment! I suggest that you contact the children's librarian at your local branch. From time to time children's materials are sent to Books to Go, a program where books recently weeded are offered free or at low-cost to other city agencies and patrons. By contacting the children's librarian you can let her know the type of materials you're looking for. Please note: the library does not automatically make donations. Teachers have to come in and request the materials and they also have to arrange for pick up. I hope this helps!
