Children's Picture Books for Math
Learning math concepts is so much easier and loads more fun when presented in picture book format. Your child's comprehension of mathematical concepts can speed on despite the slower pace needed to acquire computational skills (like memorizing their math facts).

Children's Picture Books for Science & Nature Study
Children are born curious and that curiosity taken outdoors to explore nature makes them born naturalists. Learn more about how picture books can stimulate children to find out more about the natural world and to begin developing an understanding of basic science concepts.

Children's Picture Books for Social Studies
A little history, a little geography, and heaping dose of entertainment--that's what makes picture books with a social studies emphasis delightful reading for the preschool set.

Children's Picture Books for Music & Art
It's hard to get preschoolers to stand still when you put on a lively music CD. They just seem to understand that music was meant to be enjoyed with your entire body whether that's toe tapping or floating along like a ballerina. Picture books, some do come with their own CDs, will allow children to explore the lives of famous musicians, composers, and artists, and gain a deeper understanding of why they love the music they hear or the artwork they see.

Folk & Fairy Tales
Folk and fairy tales are the stuff of once upon a time on which all children thrive. Where else can you get a terrific story with an easy to relate to moral?

Holiday Children's Picture Books
Holiday picture books can be generic and trite or they can be unique. At we like unique picture books, so we'll point you in that direction whether you want Christmas, Hanukkah, or Valentine's Day books.

Religious Children's Picture Books
Picture books can reinforce the many lessons you teach your children and grandchildren about their religious faith.

Audio Children's Books
Reading picture books aloud to your children is one form of storytelling. In the car, you can still have read-aloud time by listening to books on tape. Then there's that very special form of children's audio book, the storytelling CD. Jim Weiss is one of the most renowned storytellers for children. If you haven't listened to one of his children's CDs, you do not know what you're missing.
