Kidsreads Reviewers Pick Their Favorite Books of 2017!

There's no better way to start an argument with self-proclaimed book nerds than to ask "what is the best children's book of 2015?" We decided to get our lovely reviewers and Teen Board members involved in the debate by asking them to tell us a few of their favorites. See below for their picks, and a few fun quotes. Do you agree with their choices?
