With an inspiring new collection of stories for Rebel Girls, a new Diary of a Wimpy Kid novel, newly discovered books from Shel Silverstein AND Mark Twain, and a hilarious return to the Dragons Love Tacos universe, our list of best kids’ books of 2017 is filled with can’t-miss titles for readers of all ages.

    Picture Books

    Dragons Love Tacos 2: The Sequel, by Adam Rubin and Daniel Salmieri
    If every day is Taco Tuesday in your house, then Dragons Love Tacos is likely a storytime favorite. And now there’s finally a follow-up! Tacos have disappeared from Earth in this story, and the dragons must undertake a time-traveling quest to recover them. Can they do it? Without any spicy funny business? Dedicated fans will remember what happened last time…

    It Takes a Village, by Hillary Rodham Clinton and Marla Frazee
    Clinton’s classic bestseller lends itself easily to picture book format, and young readers will instantly connect to the ideas presented in Frazee’s sunny illustrations. Watch a community grow from the ground up at your next storytime!

    Pete the Cat and the Cool Cat Boogie, by James Dean
    Pete has put his dancing shoes on, and he’s ready to boogie! But Grumpy Toad, whose deadpan delivery is spot-on, points out Pete’s multiple left feet. Will Pete dust himself off and get those paws moving again? Step-by-step dance moves are included for your little dancer!

    Princesses Wear Pants, by Savannah Guthrie and Allison Oppenheim
    Princess Penelope Pineapple wears a lot of hats as junior ruler of the Pineapple Kingdom, and most of her work requires something sturdier than a frilly dress. Indeed, every morning, she bypasses the sequins and lace, and makes a beeline for yoga pants or a flight suit – depending on what the day requires. This encouraging tale celebrates fashion and challenges gender stereotypes—the perfect recipe for an empowering storytime!

    Runny Babbit Returns, by Shel Silverstein
    The poems in Runny Babbit were winnowed from a large quantity of tongue-tied-rabbit themed poems Shel Silverstein wrote and illustrated, and lucky for readers, there’s enough material for a new volume that hit bookstores September 19. An editor who’d worked with Silverstein when he was alive collaborated closely with his family members to select the 41 poems for this volume. According to Publishers Weekly, they even laid out all the possible Runny Babbit poems and illustrations on the floor, covering the hallway of the publisher’s office, to help them make the final decision—a process Silverstein probably would have enjoyed.

    Uni the Unicorn and the Dream Come True, by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Brigette Barrager
    This sweet and sparkly sequel to Uni the Unicorn answers an important question: Why exactly is a double rainbow so magical? It’s been raining nonstop in the land of unicorns, which means that all the magic has drained out of these magical creatures. Their magic subsists on sunshine, rainbows, and the sparkle of belief. But one unicorn has managed to persist—Uni, who has never doubted the existence of little girls. Far away, a girl senses she is needed in the land of unicorns. Will she be united with Uni and restore magic to the land? Kids will love this whimsical and dreamy tale.

    She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, by Chelsea Clinton and Alexandra Boiger 
    This beautiful watercolor picture book from Chelsea Clinton herself details thirteen diverse women who helped change America through their tenacity and drive. The title is a play on the words used to silence Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren on the Senate floor, and the book is meant to celebrate those women who found their voices and spoke up, even when others wanted them to stop. The book features stories of women who persisted in doing what was right despite overwhelming odds, including Harriet Tubman, Sonia Sotomayor, Maria Tallchief, and Sally Ride.

    Through Your Eyes: My Child’s Gift to Me, by Ainsley Earhardt and Ji-Hyuk Kim
    Life can be cluttered and hectic, especially at this time of year. Simple joys and everyday miracles surround us, however, and often it’s our children who spot them first. FOX News anchor Earhardt follows up her bestselling Take Heart, My Child with a stirring reflection that reminds us to take a breath, take in the beauty, and follow our children as they wander.

    We’re All Wonders, by R.J. Palacio
    When Wonder wowed older kids and parents alike, and activated a meaningful new anti-bullying movement called “Choose Kind,” Palacio knew she wasn’t finished writing about kindness. So she created a picture book version of her powerful story for younger readers. Prepare to be inspired!

    Everything Is Mama, by Jimmy Fallon and Miguel Ordonez
    “Everything is Mama according to you, but there are other fun words you’ll want to know too,” begins Jimmy Fallon’s latest children’s book. In Fallon’s first kids’ book, Your Baby’s First Word Will Be Dada, a bunch of animal dads set out to make their little ones’ first word to be “Dada!” But in this sweet and rhyming picture book, all the little baby animals call everything “Mama!”—the sun, their shoes, and even a balloon. Can the animal parents set them straight? Find out in this colorful and lighthearted read.

    Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls 2, by Elena Favilli and Francesca Cavallo
    Send your little girl off to sleep with some incredible real-life fairy tales about strong and accomplished women throughout history and the present day. This second installment of Good Night Stories for Rebel Girls includes short biographies about 100 amazing women like Nefertiti, Audrey Hepburn, Rachel Carson, Sophie Scholl, Aisholpan, Beyonce, and more. The book also includes a detachable map, a glossary, and 100 beautiful portraits created by female artists.

    Malala’s Magic Pencil, by Malala Yousafzai and Kerascoet
    As a child, Nobel Peace Prize winner and bestselling author Malala Yousafzai would wish for a magic pencil to improve the lives of those around her. She tells the story of her own childhood and that nightly wish in her first picture book. She recalls realizing that wishes weren’t enough, and she needed to take action. “One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world,” she reminds readers. This wonderful read encourages young readers to find their own magic and to share it with the world.

    Gift Guide: Up All Night Reads for the Thriller Obsessed 

    Diving into a gritty thriller and losing yourself in a page-turning story is an inordinately satisfying experience. This holiday season, why not give the gift of sleepless nights—the kind the receiver will actually thank you for? Some of our favorite big name authors (from Dan Brown to John Grisham!) have long-awaited brand new books out, and there’s something for every thriller fan. See the complete list in our Holiday Gift Guide for more ideas for your thrill-seeking friends and family.

    The Rooster Bar, by John Grisham
    Grisham proves he’s still got his finger on the pulse in his newest, telling the story of idealistic but broke law students Mark, Todd, and Zola, who mortgage their future in the form of student loans to attend a third-tier law school. In their third year, the trio realizes they’ve been victims of the Great Law School Scam: the graduates of their school rarely pass the bar and almost never get jobs—and the school’s owner also owns the bank that wrote the paper on their loans. Naturally, smart nearly-lawyers go for the only option they have available: revenge. It’s going to take planning and risks (like dropping out before earning your degree) but it’s the only option if you want a little justice—and the result is an Ocean’s 11 for the LSAT crowd.

    Origin, by Dan Brown
    Brown returns to his most successful character with an all-new Robert Langdon adventure, this time centered in Spain and focusing on more modern art. Langdon starts off the book as the guest of former student-turned-billionaire Edmond Kirsch, who is staging a provocative presentation at the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao and hinting at the answers to two of the fundamental questions of human existence. Naturally, things go very, very wrong, and Langdon soon finds himself fleeing to Barcelona with museum director Ambra Vidal and working desperately to discover a password Kirsch left behind that will unlock all of the billionaire’s secrets. Their opponent, however, seems to be all-knowing, and firmly rooted in the Spanish royal palace—but there’s no one on Earth more equipped to deal with codes and symbols than Robert Langdon.

    Sleeping Beauties, by Stephen King and Owen King
    King and his son Owen team up for a book with a timely, terrifying premise: what if, in the very near future, most of the women in the world simply went to sleep and didn’t wake up? Covered in cocoon-like white membranes, the women become feral attackers if disturbed. the Kings being Kings, they set the action in a depressed Appalachian town whose main employer is a women’s prison. Men, left to their own devices, don’t react well, and society begins to unravel even as the question of what’s happening with the female half of the population lingers. One woman named Evie who appears immune, and might be a savior—or some sort of demon come to supervise the downfall of man. Filled with smart social commentary and larger-than-life characters, this is a top-notch collaboration from the biggest family name in the business..

    The Lying Game, by Ruth Ware
    Four women—Isa, Kate, Thea, and Fatima—spent their boarding school years at Salten House, sneaking away to hang with Kate’s art teacher father and her dreamy brother and play the Lying Game, a challenge to get people to believe the most outlandish stories they could dream up. It all ends in tragedy, and 20 years later, new mum Isa receives a note from Kate that sends her off on a train and back to the village of Salten, where she meets the rest of the old gang. It seems a bone has been found in the marshes nearby, and the women know all about its origins—and the discovery of a body means all of their lives, and the lies they’re built on, could come apart.

    Enemy of the State, by Kyle Mills
    The 16th Mitch Rapp novel (and third by Mills since Vince Flynn’s passing) finds Rapp enlisted by the president to clean up a growing mess in Saudi Arabia, as rival factions of the royal family and the government fund terrorists and plot against one anther, sowing chaos and supporting ISIS. Rapp employs his usual steady professionalism, assembling the sort of team you can rely on to carry out the high-level maneuvers required—including his lover, Claudia Gould, his former enemy Grisha Azarov, and former army sniper turned drug runner Kent Black. The seemingly impossible mission requires a clever plan, but as usual, readers can rest assured Rapp has one.

    My Not So Perfect Life Author Sophie Kinsella Shares Her Summer Reading List 

    Sophia Kinsella’s latest, My Not So Perfect Life, centers on the FOMO-drenched existence of office drone and unlikely heroine Katie Brenner. Her obsession with the seemingly enviable life of her hip, brilliant boss, Demeter, crashes and burns after she’s fired without warning, sending her into a tailspin. Katie picks herself up and heads to her family farm in Somerset, where she’ll help set up a new business, find her footing again, and come face to face with Demeter again, learning more about the truth behind the image and setting a course to pursue her own (not so) perfect life.

    My Not So Perfect Life is a thoroughly perfect summer read, and here’s Kinsella to share six more of her own picks for the season.

    My Not So Perfect Life is a book about women, the workplace, the pressures of social media, life in London and the draw of the countryside. The books I’ve chosen all inform or entertain in one of these areas.

    The Circle, by Dave Eggers
    This chilling view of where social media might take us is a must-read.

    Read an excerpt on B&N Readouts >

    The Hating Game, Sally Thorne
    This is a great study of the ultimate love/hate work relationship.

    Read an excerpt on B&N Readouts >

    Not Working, Lisa Owens
    I loved this tale of modern not-office life – very fresh and funny.

    Read an excerpt on B&N Readouts >

    Ctrl, Alt, Delete: How I Grew Up Online, by Emma Gannon
    I love this memoir about growing up in the age of social media.

    A Room with a View, E.M. Forster
    This has the best love scene in the countryside ever!

    Far from the Madding Crowd, Thomas Hardy
    An sweeping, atmospheric novel set in the English countryside, with strong passions and even stronger characters.

    Melding Romance and YA: A Guest Post from Trust Author Kylie Scott 

    Writing my new book, Trust, required a slight shift in genre and thinking for me. It’s not only my first Indie release, but it’s my first ever Young Adult book as well. While the story is still first and foremost a romance, it is set firmly within a YA world. The hero and heroine are both seniors in high school so Trust takes place within and around all of those signature situations: lunchtime in the school cafeteria, sneaking in a conversation during class, and hanging out with friends. Portraying younger characters was a great challenge, one I thoroughly enjoyed.

    While Romance and YA can cover quite different territory, there’s also overlap. Both zero in on what can be the most important time in a person’s life. YA covers that formative period when you first start having the freedom to shape how your life will go (planning for work, college, etc). Romance explores that period when you open up to someone else, and work out whether you can be life partners. Both are massive times of change, and the personal journey sits at the center of each story.

    Writing YA required me to reflect back on those periods in my own life (no time travel involved, sadly). I also had to research what the main issues are now. The world has changed since I was seventeen, though the fundamentals remain the same. Normally when I’m writing, I try to avoid reading anything that’s even slightly similar to my book. Otherwise another author’s ideas can infiltrate my story. The subconscious is a tricky thing. But in this case, I was trying to craft a story and style that would meet the expectations of both romance and YA readers. It was a terrific excuse to do lots of new reading!

    My top recommendations for contemporary YA with romance are: Night Owls by Jenn Bennett, Punk 57 by Penelope Douglas, Wild Reckless by Ginger Scott, The Boy Most Likely To by Huntley Fitzpatrick, Fallen Crest High by Tijan, Shuffle Repeat by Jen Klein, and Attraction by Penny Reid. Honestly, the list could go on and on. And I’m not even getting into amazing fantasy, urban fantasy, and sci-fi.

    But back to me and my book. Trust melds YA and romance by telling the story of two young people who suffer through the same harrowing hostage situation, but are driven toward opposite journeys. In the aftermath of the violence, Edie, the heroine, finds her nicely organized life no longer makes sense to her. While John, the hero, tries to claw his way out of a world of crime and violence. It’s only by coming together that they find love and understanding.

    I hope you enjoy it!

    Trust is on B&N bookshelves now.

    Meet 2017’s Above & Beyond B&N Bookseller 

    Barnes & Noble’s Above & Beyond Award recognizes booksellers for excellence in delivering extraordinary customer service, showing team spirit, going the extra mile, increasing business knowledge, and exemplifying personal growth. This year Barnes & Noble is honoring a wonderful bookseller with the 2017 Above & Beyond Award. Let’s meet the winner!

    Anne Violette
    Store: Bolingbrook, IL
    Exemplifies: Delivering Extraordinary Customer Service

    The Perfect Match
    Anne’s store manager says, “When Anne Violette (pictured right) joined our team last year as a Bookseller, we were excited for her previous experience as a former Children’s Lead at our Walpole, MA, store. In a few short months, she was promoted to fill our position as a second Children’s Lead.

    “Anne’s focus on customers has been a game changer, and her dedication to meeting customers’ expectations has had a tremendous impact on the whole team. Whatever Anne is doing, she puts the customers and her co-workers first, striking the perfect balance between completing her tasks, helping others with their work, and volunteering for special projects, while successfully engaging every customer in her path. The time and care she takes with every customer ensures that their experience is memorable, and the model she sets for her fellow booksellers created a new store standard. Anne goes the distance with her customers, taking them to various departments to make recommendations or carrying their purchase to the register to complete the transaction and issue a Membership. She takes the time to build a relationship with her customers and soon we were calling her our “book concierge.”

    “In Anne’s own words, ‘This is my dream job. I love working here, I love the people I work with and I love the customers.’ As her store manager, I can see Anne and Barnes & Noble are the perfect match.”

    We asked Anne a few questions about her job.

    What are some of your favorite books to recommend to reluctant readers?
    I have a brother who is a reluctant reader. I had purchased a Science Fiction Anthology for him and he loved it. Usually I hear that they don’t have a lot of time to read or don’t have any particular genre they like, so I like to suggest some short stories or anthologies.

    What book changed your life?
    Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance. It was the first book I read that was not a just a story. I was on a train trip from Syracuse to Chicago and was reading that—not only did it open up a whole new type of literature to me; but it made me quite a few friends. I had several people come up to me and want to talk about the book, including a professor who was teaching a class based on it.

    What upcoming children’s book are you most excited about, and why?
    Actually, I think the The Dark Prophecy by Rick Riordan sounds like an exciting addition to this great series. I love that I have boys and girls alike coming in eager to read the whole series and then move into the next one because they found them so engaging.

    What children’s book do you think everyone should read?
    When I was a little girl I had a very basic book of children’s fairy tales that I read and re-read over and over. I love that we have so many beautiful fairy tale books—especially a lot of bargain ones. It gives them a great place to escape to and use their imagination.

    What is your work superpower?
    My smile—I love sharing it with the customers and my co-workers as much as possible.

    What is the most fun part of your job?
    I take it as a personal challenge to try and make each customer I interact with leave with a smile; so I am amazed and delighted to be working somewhere that not only values my interaction with the customers—but rewards it! As I told Carol—this is my dream job. It combines my two favorite things, people and books! And I do love my family here at Barnes and Noble Bolingbrook!

    Congratulations to our 2017 Above & Beyond Winner!
