2015 Children’s Choices List

The Children’s Book Council and the International Literacy Association have released the 2015 Children’s Choices List. The list is voted on by over 36,000 children across the United States, who read newly-published books.

This list has been going on for over 40 years, starting in 1974. The pdf of the list is beautifully designed too, something worth printing and having at the Children’s Services desk at your library.
