Books to Love
February 8th, 2014 · Deanna S. · Staff Recommendations
Express your love for books at West Harrison Library. It is important to encourage children to express this emotion about the people and things they cherish most.
Love provides a foundation for a child’s positive growth and development. An understanding of love helps a child develop meaningful friendships. It also helps them to overcome obstacles in their daily lives. After embracing the concept of love a child will be more likely to appreciate diversity and the unique qualities, personalities, talents and interests that they and others have.
Books featuring the topic of love will help children develop an expression of gratitude for the material and non-material things they hold dear. Love is universal. Love is everywhere. It is definitely in our collection. Take a look and find a book that you and your child will love.
