The 2014 ORTR Booklist (PDF) sorts good books under each of the Six Skills AND Five Practices, so every book on the list supports both a skill and a practice.

Babies Need Words Every Day, a project of the ALSC Early Childhood Programs and Services Committee, helps libraries support and encourage caregivers by providing friendly materials to encourage reading, singing, and talking with babies. Download the Babies Need Words Every Day Booklist Brochure to print and share with families.

While focused toward school-age children, the Ohio Whole Child Booklist (PDF) of titles that promote empathy, persistence, and resilience is a helpful resource that includes many titles suitable for preschool storytime and early school-age programming. It was developed in 2016 with input from over a dozen Ohio librarians.
