Do you follow the Best Books lists published by Publishers Weekly? They have some amazing suggestions every year that are definitely worth looking into, and like many other listmakers, they also share a children's list. This year's major front runners for the adult list included the book about the untouchable caste of India, Ants Among Elephants, and book about spirit photography, The Apparitionists.
This year's kids' books had another thrilling installment by Philip Pullman called The Book of Dust. American Street and After the Fall, a take on humpty dumpty that explores anxiety and trauma, were also highly rated.
