My Favorite Children's Books of This Year

Okay, so this will sound funny, but I love reading children's books:)  I work a second job in a library, and well when its slow I like to pick up kids books to read.  One because they are fun, but also because they are a quicker read in case a patron comes up:)  Then there is the fact that I love reading them to my nieces and nephews!  So I decided I'd post some of my favorite children's reads of this year.




Fancy Nancy books have to be my favorite kids books out right now.  They are fun, and for any age 2 on up, but mostly girls will love these.  They are also fun to read to kids you'll love the Fancy Talk feel of these adorable books.  Additionally there are dozens of different ones to choose from, I haven't found one yet I didn't like!
Fancy Nancy books are by Jane O'Connor






Earth to Clunk, this is a fun read likely any child would laugh at the fun storyline, but I think especially little boys will find this one funny!  This one is one of my favorites as far as new books to the market this year!  Earth to Clunk is written by Pam Smallcomb








Younger school age kids will love this book, this one put smiles on my face as I read it.  Boys and girls ages 3 and up, are probably the best target range.  Substitute Creacher is by Chris Gall







This is one of those books that have a really cute message behind it.  I can see why it has won awards.  Boys and girls 2 and up will enjoy having this story read to them!  Sylvester and the Magic Pebble is by William Steig









The Hair of Zoe Fleefenbacher Goes to School by Laurie Halse Anderson.  Fun read for younger school age kids!








This is one of those books that I wasn't sure about when I started, but really loved that I took the time to pick it up.  Very cute story, boys and girls ages 2 and up will love this one!  Children Make Terrible Pets is by Peter Brown.






Another great fun read!  The Wacky Substitute by Sally Derby
Likely younger school age kids will love this the most, but it could be fun for any age!








The Librarian from the Black Lagoon by Mike Thaler, another fun read that will make kids laugh!








I really thought this one is cute!  Where's the Dragon?  By Jason Hook
This is a great bedtime read for kids!










Another fun bedtime read, No Jumping On The Bed by Tedd Arnold, just a fun cute story ages 2 and up will love!








Sheila Rae, The Brave by Kevin Henkes, this is an adorable little story.  Fun bedtime or anytime read, kids ages 2 and up will love.  It also has a cute meaningful message in the story, which is always good!







I could give you another dozen, but this will have to be enough for now!  Whether you collect kids books or just love to check out cute great books at a library to read to your kids.  These are a great bunch that if you are like me at all, you'll love them!  The great thing about an adult loving a kids book, is it will be even more fun for you to read them to your own kids or like me your nieces and nephews!  
Enjoy your summer reading!!!
