Must-Read Lists - Children's Core Collections

Looking for excellent, diverse books? Consider the titles on our Children's Core Collection Lists, curated by Denver Public Library staff to ensure that a variety of reading levels, topics, themes, genres and more have been included. These lists include timeless classics, soon-to-be classics, funny books, touching books and lots in between. Some books are great for kids to explore on their own, while others are wonderful for families to enjoy together. More lists will be added as they become available. 

Want something that you can pick up at your closest Denver Public Library location today? While looking at the list in the catalog, tick the Available Now check box on the left sidebar. Then tick the checkbox for your preferred pick up locations. This will bring up a list of items currently on the shelf at the locations you select.
