  • Original booklists created by the CCBC professional staff on a wide range of themes and topics.

    You can also find out how to order a copy of the most recentCCBC Choices, the CCBC’s annual best-of-the-year list of outstanding books for children and teens. We also provide links to many of the annual children’s and young adult literature awards and best-of-the-year lists.

  • Information and links on challenges to books and other materials are available for teachers to help you think about choosing materials for your classroom, and to help you better prepare to face challenges to materials if they do occur. Wisconsin teachers facing a materials challenge are encouraged to make use of our CCBC Intellectual Freedom Information Services.
