A reading list with a twist! Children themselves evaluate the books and write reviews of their favorites. Since 1974, Children’s Choices have been a trusted source of book recommendations used by teachers, librarians, parents—and children themselves.
The project is cosponsored by IRA and the Children’s Book Council.
The International Reading Association is looking for Team Leaders for their Choices Programs (Children’s, Teachers’ and Young Adult’s). The IRA considers numerous factors in selection, such as geographical representation, number of students, type of population, knowledge of children and young adult literature, leadership and professional involvement, attendance at IRA conventions, and interest from and support of selected schools. If you are committed to children and young adult literature and have access to students, please fill out the online application.
