Library Visits With Kids

When my daughter was little, I used to take her to the library to pull out the storybooks and we would read some in the library and then we would bring some home. But my son, who is now 3 years old, has much more of a fascination with certain subjects. He's been very enticed by knights and castles and pirates.

I found that we quickly exhausted these storybook sections in the library, so I asked the librarian what they might have in the non-fiction section that would interest my 3 year old. I was amazed at the fabulous books that were in that section. We found something on knights and pirates with lots of pictures which my son really found fascinating. I've learned a lot more about these subjects now too.

I really recommend trying the non-fiction section in the library for your preschooler to find much more information than in a storybook. I take the children with me when we go to library and they pick out the ones that they want and using the non-fiction section has given us more choices to pick from.
