Best Books 2016!

A student asked me this week what my favorite children's book of all time is. OF ALL TIME! Goodness, how can I choose just one? I can hardly choose a small handful for my favorite books of the YEAR!

Here are 14 books published in 2016 that made me squeal with delight, feel warm fuzzies, and/or want to hug them. Yes, it's a very personal and not at all objective list. Links to the "Best of 2016" lists from a variety of sources are located at the end of this post. Enjoy!
