Favorite Piles for Kids and Teens 2020

Like just about everything in 2020, reading is different. Based on many conversations with customers, there's a good chance you agree. I've been reading mostly quiet mysteries and historical novels  and not very many kids books (and I'm the kids specialist!). So my Top Tens for Kids and Teens have to be different this year as well. I'm not even calling them "Top Tens" because there are more than ten on each list and I haven't read them all. I could have called these lists "Favorite, Most Anticipated, Recommended from Readers I Trust, Highest on my Nightstand Stack, and/or Eagerly Planning on Reading Soon," but that seemed too long. I settled on "Favorite Piles of 2020."

The links below will take you to a pile for each of the main categories in the Kids Section. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
