Welcome 2016

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season, and that the New Year treats you well. Thought I'd start off 2016 by giving you a glimpse of some of my favourite childrens' books of 2015. I could go on and on, but I am trying to limit myself. What were your best books of 2015?

The Little Gardener by Emily Hughes
How The Library....by Wendy Meddour
Imaginary Fred by Eoin Colfer/Oliver Jeffers
The Christmas Eve Tree Delia Huddy/Emily Sutton
