Books: 2014 Updates of “Building a Home Library” For Children Bibliographies Now Available Online

The 2014 editions of “Building a Home Library” for children bibliographies are now available online.

These bibliographies, updated every two years, are provided by the ALA-Children’s Book Council (CBC) Joint Committee with cooperation from ALSC’s [Association for Library Service to Children] Quicklists Consulting Committee.

When creating these lists the committee looked to include tried and true classics; under the radar gems; multicultural books; and new, yet notable, reads for all ages.

Librarians, educators, and others who work with families are encouraged to download and print these brochures and share them with parents, grandparents, and caregivers in their community.

Four bibliographies are available.

Books for children birth to age 3

Books for children ages 4 – 7

Books for children ages 8-11

Books for children ages 12-14
