I decided to read and briefly review each of the New York Times Best Illustrated Books of 2014. I find this list intriguing because it contains books that aren't necessarily Caldecott buzzes and don't need to fit all the Caldecott requirements. However, Travis Yonker did a little study on the possibility of a NYT Best Illustrated book winning the Caldecott or the Honor. Take a look at that blog post. I really enjoyed the list this year, and thought I'd give you an idea of what I thought about each one.
