With the end of every year comes a celebration of the best things that came out of it, and for me, the most exciting bests of the year are the books. Every year, Goodreads — a site that helps readers keep track of what they've read as well as their book recommendations — shares a list of the year's best books. In 2018, over five million readers cast their votes for their favorite reads of the year in several categories, from fiction and memoirs to young adult fantasy.

Ahead, find the 20 best middle grade and children's books and the 20 best picture books of 2018, as voted on by Goodreads users — parents and kids just like you and yours.
