AALBC.com’s Books LogoChildren book authors, industry professionals, and avid readers contributed their favorite children’s books to this list. We know children and young readers will enjoy most, if not all, of these books, as they have already brought joy to countless children.  We recommend printed books for young readers, or when reading to a child. Some of these books are decades old, but are still in print due to their significance. Others are brand new, reflecting contemporary voices and themes.

The titles below are currently listed in order of publication date (newest to oldest). A list, even one with 120+ books, can not possibly capture all the great titles available. You can always discover other excellent tiles on the list of Coretta Scott King Award Winning Books and elsewhere on AALBC.com. Here is a printable list of all the books on this list and a beautiful collage of the books covers.

Finally, if you feel strongly about uplifting children through books please read and share, “Ten Steps to Promote Diversity in Children’s Literature.” Also, be sure to check out this great sites for children’s The Brown Book Shelf (who contributed to this list) and or by searching hundreds of other websites using our Huria Search engine.
