This time of year is filled with best book lists. Here are some more that I haven’t mentioned yet:
Chicago Public Library’s librarians have published their list of the best books of 2014. They offer lists of picture books, fiction for younger readers, informational books for younger readers, fiction for older readers, informational books for older readers, teen fiction, teen nonfiction and graphic novels. There’s plenty to explore here!
The American Association for the Advancement of Science has announced the finalists for the 2015 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Children’s Science Books and the 2015 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Young Adults. There are twelve finalists on the children’s list which includes both traditional science books and ones with a hands-on focus. The young adult finalist list includes four titles.
NPR’s Book Concierge has their guide to 2014’s Great Reads. You can browse categories like Kids’ Books and Young Adult among others. I do enjoy that you can combine categories, so you can see books for teens that are fantasy or science fiction.
