Children’s Choices Reading List

Children's Choices Reading List

Children’s Choices is a reading list with a twist, in which children themselves evaluate the books and vote for their favorites. Since 1974, Children’s Choices has been a trusted source of book recommendations used by teachers, librarians, parents, and children themselves.

The project is cosponsored by the International Literacy Association and the Children’s Book Council.
