The reading list kids pick!
2017 winners announced!
Each year, over 36,000 children from different regions of the United States read newly-published children’s and young adult trade books and vote for the ones they like best. These Children’s Choices, selected from more than 900 titles, can be counted on as books children really enjoy reading.
Since 1974, Children’s Choices has been a trusted source of book recommendations used by teachers, booksellers, librarians, parents, caregivers — everyone who wishes to encourage young people to read for pleasure — and children themselves.
The project is co-sponsored by the CBC and the International Literacy Association (ILA).
Visit literacyworldwide.org for previous years’ lists.
Prior to 1998, the lists are only available in The Reading Teacher, which can be obtained through your local or university library. For information, call 1-800-336-7323 (READ) or +302-731-1600 (outside of the U.S. and Canada).
