One of my favorite things about a year wrapping up is browsing through the myriad of Best Books lists for children! It’s always fascinating to see which titles make more than one list, which titles I haven’t seen yet, and to gain inspiration for our library’s collection, gifts for friends and family, and, of course, my own reading pleasure.

In early 2020, the Children’s Department will announce our favorite picture book, fiction book, and nonfiction book published in 2019 for the Watertown Children’s Book Award! In the meantime, stop by or comment and let us know: what was your favorite book of 2019?
