2013 was a year of brilliant books for kids.
From picture books to novels, KidSpace librarians read all year long.
Along the way, we noted our favorites in five categories: Picture Books and Readers; Chapter Books for 3rd and 4th Graders, Chapter Books for 5th Grade and Up; Illustrated Fiction (picture books for older kids), Graphic Novels, Poetry and Folklore; and Non-Fiction. To create a list of 100 or so books, we combined our favorites with the top picks of the children’s literature journals we follow.
Below are links to the Niles Public Library KidSpace Best of 2013 choices.
