WORLD’s selection of 2017 Children’s Books of the Year spans three categories: picture books, middle-grade novels, and middle-grade nonfiction. For the past six months six WORLD staffers and advisers have been on the hunt for the Picture Book of the Year—an artistically excellent book that entertains children and points them to the good, the true, and the beautiful. We found many books with lovely illustrations, but finding quality stories was harder.
