Choices Reading Lists

Teachers' Choices Reading List

Teachers' Choices Reading List

Since 1989, the Teachers' Choices project has developed an annual annotated reading list of new books that will encourage young people to read. These are books that kids will enjoy—and that contribute to learning across the curriculum.

The 2019 Teachers' Choices titles, available in four collections, can be purchased through our partner Booksource.

Want to get involved? We are looking for Team Leaders for our Choices programs. We consider numerous factors in selection, such as geographical representation, number of students, type of population, knowledge of children's and young adult literature, leadership and professional involvement, attendance at ILA conferences, and interest from and support of selected schools. The team leader online application form can be found below.
