Encouraging a love of books is a great way to help your child get ready for reading. There is no better way than to start with our First and Best list because the first books you share with your child should also be the best! This year's titles feature a wide range of books that reflect a variety of stories and perspectives. All books on the list are available at library branches across the city.

Happy reading with your little one!
