There are some books that are so well done they practically beg to be read again and again. Here are some of favorites of the year that young book lovers will want you to read over and over and are good enough that you won’t mind doing so. It’s not too late for a little more holiday shopping, right?
These are all very cute board books. I read Quantum Entanglement and I still couldn’t tell you what it really is but what a great way of introducing science to babies! One of several titles in the Baby University series.
A beautifully illustrated story of what life is all about.
An outrageously silly story that you will enjoy reading as much as your child enjoys hearing it.
A new Olivia story that’s as sophisticated, clever and sassy as ever.
The story is thoughtful and interesting but this book is worth it for the illustrations alone.
A tribute to America and all Americans illustrated with Kadir Nelson’s gorgeous paintings.
New parents will appreciate the clever, sly humor and graphic style of this.
A riot of color and sound!
Historical fiction with strong characters and a good plot. At times a little sad but handled delicately.
Feisty, larger-than-life characters (mostly Gertie) who get themselves into unbelievably embarrassing and hilarious situations. Would make a great family readaloud.
A thought-provoking coming-of-age story about family, mental health and dealing with the curveballs life throws your way.
