Here to Help: Books about Day Care

Children's Services Staff Image

By sharing stories together and having conversations about the books you read, you can help young children understand the world around them. Seeing diverse experiences represented in books helps children to explore their own identities and develop empathy for others.

Going to day care for the first time is exciting and scary! Help prepare your little one with some of these books.

Not every book is available at all locations, but any title can be requested. The children’s librarian at your neighborhood library is also here to help, with suggestions for additional titles on topics of interest–or feel free to suggest some titles to us.  New books are always being added to the collection. You can find more Here to Help booklists on different topics by clicking here.
