It's that time again, when we announce our picks for the best books of the year, and today it's all about the best in children's books. 2017 has been a particularly strong year in books for middle graders, and nonfiction kids' books just keep getting better--topics and formats that appeal to kids instead of the homework-looking titles that used to dominate the category.
Our number one pick of the year in kids' books? Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow. More on that one in the Ages 9-12 section below, where you'll see our number one picks for each age group plus nonfiction kids (which covers all ages). But I'll just say this about it--Nevermoor has all the hallmarks of a series kids are going to absolutely love reading. And we are heading into a whole lot of time off on the old school calendar in the next six weeks...
Full lists for each age range are below, and you'll find it all in one place on the Best Children's Books of 2017 page.
