Our books, audiovisual items, kits, and games enable children of all ages and their caregivers to enjoy the world of reading together. Here is a sample of the collections we provide to help with early literacy.
Often a baby's first introduction to books and literacy, board books have sturdy covers and pages, bright pictures, and few words.
JE Picture Books
Picture books contain lots of illustrations that work together with text to tell stories. Since picture books can be designed for different audiences, look for our BOUNCE stickers on the spines of many of those meant for the youngest ages.
This collection contains informational books geared toward kids of all ages, so look for the BOUNCE labels on early literacy titles.
R Beginning Readers
Designed for children who are learning to read, our beginning reader books are color-coded by reading level.
Grab and Go Bags
Each bag includes five picture books (four fiction and one nonfiction) on a specific topic, like trucks, butterflies, friends, superheroes, sports, and more.
Board Games & Adventure Kits
Hands-on activities for families to check out and enjoy at home.
These are fiction picture books with audio narration through either an attached rechargeable preloaded player or a CD. Additional titles can be found interfiled with nonfiction, biography, and beginning readers.
