Children’s Book Committee at Bank Street College of Education releases 2019 edition of The Best Children’s Picture Books of the Year in Spanish

The Children’s Book Committee at Bank Street College of Education has released the 2019 edition of their annual book list The Best Children’s Picture Books of the Year in Spanish. The list is for picture books published or translated in 2018.

The Best Children’s Picture Books of the Year in Spanish was created by native and non-native Spanish speaking members of the Children’s Book Committee as well as employees, alumnae, and professors of Bank Street College. Each book received the same vigorous review as works submitted for our “Best Books of the Year” list in English.

This list will be sent to librarians and elementary teachers around the country and is available on the Bank Street College of Education website. Attendees at the March 9, 2019 mini-conference Diverse Voices in Latinx Children’s Literature will receive a copy.

The Children’s Book Committee will begin reviewing again for the 2020 list in March. At that time, Spanish language picture books either written or translated in 2019 can be sent for review and possible inclusion. Review copies can be sent to the following address:

Dr. Cynthia Weill
Director, Center for Children’s Literature
5th Floor Library
Bank Street College of Education

New York, New York  10025
