With the holidays around the corner and 2019 coming to an end, several companies are putting out their “best of” lists from the past year—including Amazon. The retailer recently put out its list of the best children’s books published in 2019, with editors’ picks for the top 20 books for readers of all ages and the top 20 books in various age categories.

For the top 20 children’s books of the year, Julie Murphy’s Dear Sweet Pea (also the author young adult novel Dumplin’, now a Netflix film) took the winning spot, according to this blog post. It tells the story of Patricia “Sweet Pea” DiMarco, a child dealing with her parents’ divorce who embarks on adventure that changes her world forever.

Below are five books from the list, as well as some of the top books from the Baby to Age 2 category and the Ages 3 to 5 category. Each of these is bound to steal your heart this upcoming holiday season as you and baby cuddle up to read.
