Alphabet Hunt At The Library

My preschooler and I have discovered a fun game to play when we visit our local library. Before
we walk in we agree upon a letter that we are going to "hunt" for. Then we head on up to the children's section and she scans the bins for the chosen letter. When we first started the game, she would find the letter anywhere in the title. Now she can find the books that start with the chosen letter.

Here are some books she picked for the letter W.

The bonus is you get to discover some real gems !
And you don't have to go home with a pile of pink princess books. It also adds a little structure to a sometimes overwhelming process.
