Remember nprbooks Book Concierge? nypl has developed a similar service, just to highlight the best children’s books of 2013. Sweet!
Want full-color, in-your-face, informed-beyond-belief, ecstatic evidence that libraries support the publishing industry through and through? Enter this glorious interactive best-book experience, broken down by ages (e.g., picture books) along with topics (say, multicultural) and created by NYPL Labs, an R&D unit of the New York Public Library.
You can bet your ISBNs that it’s inspiring a new list in CAT, as is YALSA’s endless (in a good way) Best Fiction for Young Adults nominees, aka BFYA: 100 or so recommended reads for kids ages 12-18 and coming from Big Five presses as well as Abrams (coming to the Cloud soon), EgmontUSA, Candlewick, Flux, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and more.
