Bank Street College’s Best Books of the Year List

Each year the Children’s Book Committee at Bank Street College reviews over 6,000 children’s and young adult books and creates an annual list of the year’s best. The committee is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary, and to celebrate, has made the list available free online for the first time.

I’ve shared links to the YA lists below:

Some Canadian YA mentions include:

  • Leftovers by Heather Waldorf
  • Pop by Gordon Korman
  • Wondrous Strange by Lesley Livingston
  • Greener Grass by Caroline Pignat
  • My Name is Phillis Wheatley: A Story of Slavery and Freedom by Afua Cooper
  • Little Brother by Cory Doctorow
