Every kid’s life should be filled with books – at home, at school and anywhere they travel.

Kids take great pride in owning books, so giving them for holidays and special occasions is a wonderful idea. Great Books for Kids presents recent, high quality publications for kids of all ages – and their families.

The Cuyahoga County Public Library staff recommend that you consider these titles for gift-giving throughout the year. The books, though not necessarily all formats, and toys in this guide are also available to borrow from Cuyahoga County Public Library.
