Best Children's Books of 2018

With the vast amount of titles published for children in 2018, it can be challenging to see the forest for the trees. Identifying new titles for use in programs, displays, teacher collections, and class visits can be challenging and time-consuming.

In this interactive 2-hour webinar program, Jill Burket Ragase will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:

  • Be up-to-date on recently released board books, picture books, chapter books, and nonfiction books for children
  • Pair new items to create storytimes and other programs

This overview of must-have board, picture, and nonfiction books cover under-the-radar choices for programs and class visits, coverage of un-reviewed items, and suggestions for almost every facet of your collection. Program ideas, pairings, and an extensive bibliography are also included.


Presenter: Jill Burket Ragase has eagerly shared her passion for collection development and Youth Services as an Independent Library Consultant for four years. She is the former Juvenile Collection Development Librarian for the Public Library of Cincinnati and Hamilton County, an SLJ 5 star library and winner of the National Medal for Museum and Library Services. She is also the proud parent of two, yes two sets of boy/girl twins with her husband Mark in Cincinnati, OH.
