All booklists posted online are available at the library checkout desk. Tammy’s Booktalks (1999-2011) are available in the library only.

Age 0-6

  • Rhyming Books Rhyming picture books. Rhymes are great for helping very young children understand how language works so they will be ready to read when they start kindergarten.

Age 6-12

  • Graphic Novels Some of Barratt’s favorite comics for kids. Graphic novels are great for all children, especially reluctant readers and English language learners, because they teach valuable visual decoding skills.
