NZ National Library November 2021 by Services to Schools Staff

Books and reading are a source of comfort and an escape for many a child (and adult!) during challenging times. Here’s a round-up of Services to School staff picks for best children’s and young adult (YA) books published in 2021.

A theme of resiliency runs through a number of the books in this year’s list, offering readers the chance to walk alongside characters, who draw strength from empathy, compassion, humour, and friends. Such is the power of reading!
