An exciting time of year for me is when the buzz of the best books of the year are gathered into lists! Also coming soon are the American Library Association’s 2016 Youth Media Awards, where the books awarded the Newbery, Caldecott, Sibert, Coretta Scott King awards and many more are announced. The ALAYMA event will take place at 8 a.m. Eastern time on Monday, January 11, 2016. You can read more about the awards, previous winners and watch the announcements of this year’s winner after 1/11 here. Check in with me on that day if you would like to know which books won!
Below are a just a few of my favorite lists that compile the best kids’ books published in 2015. Even though the book is on one of these lists, please still check that the content is suitable and appropriate.
