Every year at this time the American Library Association recognizes what it considers to be the "best of the best" in children's and teen's literature for the year. Children's librarians geek out over the titles and watch to see if their favorite books get picked. Here are the winners from this year. There's a link at the bottom if you aren't familiar with all of the different awards and want to read more. From picture books to books published for adults with teen appeal and everything in between, there are a lot of great reads in this list!
