Choices Reading Lists

Update from ILA: As a result of disruptions to schools and businesses caused by COVID-19, the Choices reading program has been suspended for the upcoming year 2020–2021. The 2020 reading lists are available below.

Our Choices reading lists, shaped by thousands of students and educators across the United States, serve as a valuable resource—particularly in these times of remote and virtual learning. They bridge the distance by connecting us with stories that kids, teens, and teachers find inspiring, comforting, and empowering.

Children's Choices is cosponsored by the Children's Book Council and includes children's recommendations of approximately 100 titles.
