Best Children's and Teen Books of 2016
Best Books for Children and Teens 2016


In May, we put out a Best of 2016 (So Far) book lists for each of our age groups, ranging from babies to teens.  I've added books to these best-of lists throughout the year, but have just completed a full update to all the lists (11/06). There are now about twice as many books on each list as there were in May, and with all the amazing fall book releases, there are tons of exciting additions. The books are organized by publication date, so you’ll find all the newest books towards the bottom of each list.  I’ll continue to add new material as those last few books of the year begin to trickle in.

The following links will direct you to our best-of lists by age group...
