Librarians and book bloggers on some of the best children’s books of the year


Picture book

They Say Blue

Jillian Tamaki

Groundwood Books

From the frameable book cover to colour-coded end pages, They Say Blue stands out. Caldecott Honor winner Jillian Tamaki explores a child’s view of the world through poetic text and bold swaths of colour. As the little girl wonders about whales, crows, and growing trees, the art washes over the reader. Colour portrays emotion, while the pacing jumps around like a child’s mind. It is truly a work of art.
