Best of the Year Part 2: Picture books and Informational Books

So these two categories are a little tricky.  I read a bunch of books this year that are both picture books and informational books.  So I am kind of going to do my best to put appropriate books into appropriate categories (but know that when it comes to categories and books, the best books are category-elusive. Anyway,  here we go:

Top Seven Picture Books I read in 2013

Ringgold, Faith (1991)  Tar Beach  (reviewed in March)

Crew, Gary; Tan, Shaun (2004)  Memorial (reviewed in March)
