This presentation includes my top picks for early 2016 children's and young adult literature titles. I will update this presentation throughout the year as I read and evaluate more books. Qualifiers: I do not promote books that I haven't read. I do receive some advanced reader copies from publishers, but I also buy lots of books. If I am missing a personal favorite or lauded title, assume that I haven't read it or that I haven't been able to buy or borrow a copy, yet.
