Introducing the Children’s Book Collection
We noticed last year that alumni who visited the library often brought their children with them, so we thought it was a great time to start cultivating future Georgetown law students with some law books especially for kids. The library has now assembled a number of children’s books, many of them law books, for children of library visitors. You can find the books in the Student Lounge (Williams Library, Room 320).
The collection is generally geared towards the preschool and elementary set, but we also have a few graphic novels and nonfiction books for older children.
A few favorites in the general children’s collection are:
- Firebird– a gorgeously illustrated and inspiring story (for aspiring dancers and truck lovers alike) by world-renowned ballerina, Misty Copeland.
- But Not the Hippopotamus – This Sandra Boynton book is particularly charming and is so very fun to read.
- Swimmy – Leo Leoni is another favorite author, and Swimmy is a perfect example of what makes Leoni great: beautiful collages, complex and lyrical language, and a thought-provoking message.
The children’s law book collection includes:
- Marshall, the Courthouse Mouse: A Tail of the U.S. Supreme Court
- A Picture Book of Thurgood Marshall
- Shhh! We’re Writing the Constitution
- March by John Lewis
