Books in the library especially for kids

kids-booksCerebra has a large selection of books in our postal lending library for children and their siblings to read to help them understand their disability.

Listed below are of some of the more popular books. This month we are featuring books for younger children and next month we will be featuring books for older children.

You can borrow the children’s books on behalf of your child, as with the sensory toys. Sorry, but children can’t be library members themselves.

The full list of children’s books in our library can be found at on our library pages.
