A couple of weeks ago, we shared Miss Rebecca’s favorite children’s books. Today we’re sharing a book list from our other children’s librarian, Miss Peggy!

If a photographic memory exists for books, Miss Peggy definitely has it. She possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of our children’s collection; so between she and Miss Rebecca, you’ll find any book of your choosing. Currently, Miss Peggy runs the Bookaneers 5th grade reading group and works closely with Miss Rebecca to prepare programs for children. She also hosts some craft sessions, so keep an eye on our calendar.

We hope you’ll enjoy Miss Peggy’s favorite picture, Early Reader, Moving Up, fiction, and non-fiction books! Click the images above and below to check availability.
