Picture Books

Picture books are for everyone! Teens and tweens – if you’re having trouble picking a picture book to read for your Beanstack badge, here are some ideas and suggestions from Teen/Tween Librarian Mollie:

  • Revisit a favorite childhood book or story.
  • Look in the Juvenile biography section (J 920) to learn about a historical figure in a picture book format. (Plus, Biography is a badge – complete 2 at once this way!)
