Concept Books for Kids

Concept Books for Kids

List created by OaklandPL_Childrens

A list of books recommended by Oakland Public Library that help to teach concepts such as the alphabet, numbers and counting, colors, size and shape, opposites, etc.

Of all the picture books in the library, concept books are arguably some of the most useful. Alphabet books help young readers recognize letters and learn their ABCs, while counting books support early math skills. Toddlers and preschoolers may strengthen their understanding of many more concepts, such as color, size, shape, time, and opposites, through books at the library. Some branches have a special section for children's concept books; ask a staff member to help you find them!
