Children’s Picture Books

Looking for some great stories to share with your family? Our children’s picture books or JPs [Juvenile Picture books] are organized by popular subject areas and then alphabetically by the author’s last name.  For example, The Very Hungry Caterpiller by Eric Carle  would be found under “Favourites”. The sticker on the spine of the book would read: FAV JP Carle.
