Spotlight On: Board Books

Board Books: These are books in the children’s area that have hard covers and pages, so they are great books for babies because the pages are tough and don’t rip. They often have few words on each page and tons of pictures. Our board books are located in the children’s area, on the right side wall. They are near the Inspiration Station and Early Literacy Area.
