The PILOT online catalog actually has a couple of subjects that you can use to identify the type of books you are looking for. Go to the PILOT catalog and select the "Subject Heading Search" option. Then enter either "Stories without words" or "Picture books for children" in the search for box. Then click "Search". You'll get a list of subject headings that match. Click on the subject to get the list of books with that subject. The full record will give you the location and call number that you can use to find the book. Another way of identifying children's books is to use some printed guidebooks that list books by subject. An example of one of these guidebooks is "A to Zoo : Subject Access to Children's Picture Books". You'll find it in the Reference Collection on the 1st floor of Stapleton Library with the call numbe [REF]Z1037.L715 2006. There are quite a few other books in the same area that can help you select books.
