Steamboat School before 2016 ends...

I’m delighted to inform you that the following books were selected for Chicago Public Library’s Best of the Best books of 2016:

  • Steamboat School

The Best of the Best lists represent our choices for the year’s most outstanding titles, books of exceptional quality for a diverse, city-wide readership. The list is widely promoted throughout Chicago, including local news coverage. We order extra copies of these books in various formats to promote them throughout the city, give them special labels, and we feature them in branch displays and in our catalog and web site. We also present them to staff as great reading suggestions to promote to our patrons.

Congratulations and thanks so much for your support throughout the year, including advance review copies, which help make this process possible. We look forward to a new year of reading your books.

All my best,


Liv Hanson | Content Curator, Youth
Technology, Content and Innovation | Chicago Public Library

and Steamboat School got an 'Honorable Mention'  Best Picture Books of 2016 by Huffington Post.

until next time...
