The Children’s Books That Took Our Breath Away This Year

Brightly, a blog about kids’ books that I contribute to, asked ten bloggers to pick the book that “took your breath away this year.” Check out this great list of 11 books (someone couldn’t choose!) ranging from picture books to middle grade to young adult.  My pick is also a book that my 4th/5th grade book club will be reading in January.  Can’t wait to see what they think.


Every year, there are a handful of books that we can’t forget. Whether because of their beautiful illustrations, astounding writing, meaningful messages, innovative styles, or groundbreaking themes, certain books are truly memorable.

We asked the Brightly contributors, the people who know books best, to share their choices for the most breathtaking book of 2015, and now we’re sharing them with you. Prepare to be captivated by 2015’s spectacular standouts.
