2005 Identification Record


Compiled by Merri V. Lindgren

Last updated: February 15, 2010

The Cooperative Children's Book Center (CCBC) annually identifies and compiles a record of those children's and young adult books received by the CCBC that have been written, compiled, translated and/or illustrated by Wisconsin book creators.

An annotated listing of Books for Children and Young Adults about Wisconsin People, Places, and Topics of Interest features books published from 1996 to the present that have been received by the CCBC and are about Wisconsin-related topics.

The CCBC always welcomes information about Wisconsin creators of children's books. If you are a Wisconsin author or illustrator who had a book published in 2005 and it is not on this list, or if you have additional information about your connection to the state of Wisconsin, please contact Merri Lindgren.

The 2005 Identification Record lists book citations alphabetically by their Wisconsin creator (author, illustrator, compiler or translator) and offers a suggested age range for readers.

This CCBC 2005 Identification Record supplements earlier annual CCBC print listings and includes those titles published and received to-date during 2005. New books will be added as we receive them.

A listing in this document does not represent a recommendation by the CCBC staff.
