Children's Choices Reading List

Children’s Choices is a reading list with a twist, in which children themselves evaluate the books and write reviews of their favorites. Since 1974, Children’s show more 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.

Goals  Give young readers an opportunity to voice their opinions about books written for them  Develop an annual annotated reading list of new books that young readers enjoy  Help teachers, librarians, booksellers, parents, and others find books that will encourage young readers to read more

Children’s Choices began as an annual joint project of the International Literacy Association (ILA) and the Children’s Book Council (CBC) in 1974. Each year, approximately 10,000 children (grades K–6) from different regions of the United States read and choose 100 favorites from books donated by North American children’s book publishers.
