The easiest way is to enter your search terms then use the Filter Audience = Children, in the left hand side of your results screen. This will narrow your results to all juvenile and easy materials. 

You can also use the filter for Reading Level (Lexile Scores) to further refine your results.

Another alternative is to use Advanced Search. You can then search by Collection. Here is the list of Children’s Collections you can limit by:

  • Easy
  • Easy Audiobook
  • Easy Countdown (Countdown to Kindergarten titles)
  • Easy Non-Fiction
  • Juvenile Audiobook
  • Juvenile Biography
  • Juvenile Compact Disc (Music CDs)
  • Juvenile DVD
  • Juvenile DVD Educational
  • Juvenile Fiction
  • Juvenile Graphic Novel
  • Large Type
  • Magazine
  • Non Fiction
  • Readers (Early Chapter Books)

In general, Easy collections are for preschool and primary ages 0-8 years and Juvenile collections are for older children 9-13. There is overlap, so it is best to review the full description of the title.

Our Children's Services staff have also put together search tips and book lists for Kids and Parents.
