Overview of Books in Our Library

Picture Book Packs

The Picture Book Packs feature small collections of books that are borrowed as a pack rather than individually. Perhaps your youngster is totally crazy about Clifford the Big Red Dog. You could borrow a stack of books by Norman Bridwell all at once without bothering to look for individual titles. Or if you just want an assortment of picture books, you may want to borrow from the A~Z Picture Book Packs, which simply group books in a pack by a key word in the title. There are also the Picture Book Packs with CDs.


Curriculum

We have books and teacher guides from Five in a Row, Jay Wile Exploring Creation, Math Teaching Textbooks, Story of the World, and various other series.

Maybe you want to use Sonlight curriculum but the cost is a bit daunting and you don’t know where you would put all the books if you had them. You may borrow many of the books by core and trimester. Since we rely heavily on book donations we don’t have all the books, but we do have a good number of them.

Not all curriculum books have been added to the online catalogue yet. This page shows you the additional curriculum available, which you can request by email.


Leveled Library

If you’re looking for books on your child’s specific reading level, this is a place to go.

A-C Kindergarten

B-I First grade

H-M Second grade

L-P Third grade

O-T Fourth grade

S-W Fifth grade

V-Y Sixth grade

Z Middle School


Books for Parents

SSS has some books for parents that are not available in the CAJ library. If you have interest in a particular topic, please let us know. These books may be borrowed individually and are not sent in packs so please let us know which books you want rather than asking for a particular category.

Parent Books are divided into the following categories:

  • Homeschool/Education (including Career/College)

  • Parenting (child-rearing, spiritual mentorship, health, Third Culture Kids, etc.)

  • Sensitive Issues (sex, death, children in pain, etc.)


If you’re looking to borrow several books on a particular topic, the unit boxes are a good place to start. You may also simply want to search for a key word in the Libib search bar.


Kids' Devotional Books & Bibles

It can be challenging to find good devotional books and Bibles for kids. We're fortunate to have a good selection, particularly for elementary and preschool-aged children.
