The New York Times / 2018 The New York Times / The New York Library Books Best


Since 1952, we have organized an annual panel of three experienced judges, who consider every photo book of children published in America in that year. They choose those who are successful in the arts based on the art of art. Judges at this time were Leonard Marcus, children's history and literature; Jenny Rosenoff, a librarian of a library in the New York Public Library; and Bryan Collier, the author and photographer of the many books and the prize winner.

Below is a summary of each of the pictures of the winning book, with comments from judges.
