Each year, thousands of children, young adults, teachers, and librarians around the United States select their favorite recently published books for the “Choices” reading lists. These lists are used in classrooms, libraries, and homes to help young readers find books they will enjoy.
The annotated and reading lists of titles and authors of Choices selections for the current year are made available in May, just before Children's Book Week, and are available for free download. Check individual Choices programs below for details.
Children's Choices is cosponsored by the Children's Book Council. The list includes brief reviews of approximately 100 titles, each of which has been recommended by children themselves.
Teachers' Choices identifies approximately 30 books rated by teams of teachers, librarians, and reading specialists as outstanding for curriculum use.
Young Adults' Choices provides descriptions of approximately 30 books selected by teenage reviewers.
