Add any of the following terms or phrases to your keyword (query word) to narrow more quickly to the Curriculum Collection:

  • juvenile
  • picture books
  • "stories in rhyme"

For example, if searching for picture books with cats, type cats picture books in the search box:

You may find it helpful to use the Location limiter at the left of the results page. Limit results to: 

  • Curriculum Collection Easy Books for fiction and non-fiction, PreK-Grade 4. 
  • Curriculum Collection Fiction for Grades 5 to Young Adult
  • Curriculum Collection Non-Fiction for Grades 5 to Young Adult.

Easy Books location  

To locate the book on the shelf, note the author's name, the entire location, and the call number. 

Children's and young adult (through grade 12) books are located in the Curriculum Collection on the 2nd floor of Andersen Library.

If the Andersen Library collection does not have the title you want, use the Get It to Request link and follow the prompts to borrow it from another UW System library using UW System Borrowing.
