A panel of book experts helped select this list of titles based on the quality, themes and readability of these books. Panel members include: Pamela Paul, The New York Times Book Review’s features editor and children’s book editor; Diane Roback, Publisher’s Weekly’s children’s book editor; Tasha Robinson, book editor for The Onion’s A.V. Club; and teacher/librarian Ted Schelvan.
