Notable Social Studies Books


Children’s Book Council and the National Council for the Social Studies have announced the 2016 Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People List. The list focuses on books for K-12 that were published in the previous year.

The books “emphasize human relations, represent a diversity of groups and are sensitive to a broad range of cultural experiences, present an original theme or a fresh slant on a traditional topic, are easily readable and of high literary quality, and have a pleasing format and, when appropriate, illustrations that enrich the text.”
