It's the Quality that Makes the Difference

High Quality children's books are the gift that keeps on giving. Young children who are exposed to good books are more likely to develop positive attitudes toward reading and learning, giving them a critical boost in literacy, cognitive growth, and social emotional development. Early exposure to quality books can translate into a lifetime of advantage. 


There's much to love about a high quality children's book. The best books:

  • Bring joy to classrooms for both children and their teachers
  • Are a fun way to help develop early reading skills such as letter and word identification 
  • Help with language development and vocabulary, as written language in children's books is more sophisticated than the spoken word
  • Promote diversity by featuring stories about children of different ages, races, cultures, and abilities
  • Offer developmentally appropriate resources to enrich your STEAM program 
  • Provide engaging and gentle ways to discuss social and emotional themes like sharing, self-control, and being kind
  • Encourage positive emotional growth by promoting effort, hard work and being brave
  • Aid in discussing such tender topics as gender barriers, divorce, and death

At the Book Vine, we read and evaluate thousands of new children's books each year, and identify those most worthy of being part of your clasrooms and collections. It's the quality of our selections that makes the difference, and you and your students deserve only the best!


Happy Reading!
