The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books has released the 2019 Guide Book to Gift Books. This annual publication, available as a free downloadable pdf, highlights over one hundred of the best books for giving and receiving. 

The Guide Book is organized by age group for easier access to the right books for a particular recipient: Picture Books, Books for Young Readers (Grades 1-3; 6-8 years), Books for Middle Readers (Grades 4-6; 9-11 years), and Books for Older Readers (Grades 7-12; 12-18 years). The guide offers a broad range of styles, genres, subjects, and challenge levels. 

"What do a world-destroying llama, a kid prankishly opening wormholes in the multiverse, and the legendary Dionne quintuplets have in common? They're all featured in stellar titles from our 2019 Guide Book to Gift Books, along with a multitude of others that will provide kids of all tastes with excellent literary company," said Deborah Stevenson, editor of The Bulletin
