2016 ALSC Notable Children's Books, Recordings and Videos: youngCanLit selections

The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC), a division within the American Library Association, announced its 2016 Notable Children's Books, Recordings and Videos at the ALA's Midwinter Meeting in Boston.

The lists for all notables are posted at the ALSC website.  However, I would like to note those Canadian books that made the list, bolding the Canadian author or illustrator.
