The 2020 ABC Best Books for Young Readers catalog cover will feature art from You Matter, written and illustrated by Christian Robinson (Atheneum Books for Young Readers). The cover art was chosen by the ABC Children’s Group Advisory Council, which brainstormed ideas for artwork that inspired them over the past year.
Additional artwork from the book will appear throughout the catalog.
This year, the ABC Children’s Group will produce the 2020 ABC Best Books for Young Readers catalog as a digital download rather than a print catalog.
The 2020 catalog will feature frontlist titles published in the year 2020 as well as a handful of backlist titles from 2019, but will not include holiday books so that the catalog may be used year-round. The catalog will be available on BookWeb.org as a printable PDF, including the back page, which serves as an order form/wishlist for young readers.
The digital download will be made available to booksellers in October.
Questions about the Best Books for Young Readers catalog can be directed to ABC Children’s Group Manager Gen de Botton.
