Children's Books 2017

posted by: December 13, 2017 - 7:00am

Looking for some good books for kids to read over winter break? Or maybe you want to buy a book as a gift but you're not sure which to pick? Here are a few "Best of" lists for 2017.


Here are two more that are our favorites:

Cover Art for A Perfect Day


A Perfect Day by Lane Smith

Each outdoor animal has his own idea of fun and what makes a perfect day. This beautifully illustrated book introduces differences to the youngest of readers in a sweetly humorous way.

Cover Art for A Boy Called Bat


A Boy Called Bat by Elana K. Arnold

When Bat’s mom, a veterinarian, brings home an orphaned skunk, Bat becomes determined to keep it. This novel for the younger elementary age group is a warm depiction of a family and a boy with autism.
