As a teacher librarian, mom and reader, when the best books of year are announced by various people and organizations, I get so excited!
In all, 66 books were selected by the review editors as the very best. These titles are organized in several different categories including Picture Books, Chapter Books, Middle Grade, Young Adult, and Nonfiction.
You will find this list here.
You can also join KidLit TV Live for School Library Journal Best of 2016 Books, Apps and More above for the recording of this wonderful event.
Also, you will love the lists below as they include all of the various resources we lift up as teacher librarians and educators to our students and school community throughout the year.
Personally, I can't wait for the Top 10 Apps from my friend Daryl Grabarek and Top 10 Tech from my friend Kathy Ishizuka.
Thank you to everyone at School Library Journal to bringing us such a special gift as we end another year of amazing books, apps and more!
