The Denver Public Library has releases its list of the Best and Brightest Children's Books for 2018.
The list was created by a team of 25 librarians who read year-round to find the best books for kids ranging from toddlers to teens.
"There's something for every age group," said Amy Forrester, a children's librarian with the Denver Public Library. "The books are not just well-written or masterfully illustrated, but books we think speak to the diversity and interests of kids in Denver."
Forrester said there are also a lot of books on the list for kids in kindergarten to 3rd grade who are developing their reading skills.
"We want them to find those books that get them excited and want to practice reading," Forrester said.
See the list by category on the Denver Public Library's website.
