How quickly 100 years pass. Seems like only yesterday the children's librarians of The New York Public Library (newly formed as of 1911) were putting together a list of the best children's books of the year. At that time they were guided by the steady hand of that most powerful of librarians, Anne Carroll Moore.
Fast forward a century and what do we find? Librarians that work with children producing that same list yet again. Amazing, no?
Download a full PDF of the final list, or take a look at them by subject on our library catalog.

Big time thanks to those librarians that dedicated countless hours and sacrificed reading fare for anyone over the age of 12 to bring together this list.
