CCBC Publications
(Bibliographies and Booklists)

The CCBC has created bibliographies and booklists of recommended books on a wide range of themes and topics. We have organized them into the following categories:

Books for Babies, Toddlers, and Preschoolers
Books for Elementary Age
Books for Middle and High School Age
Complete List (All CCBC Bibliographies of Recommended Books)

Many of the lists include books for a wide range of reading ages and will be found under more than one category.

For a listing of CCBC bibliographies by thematic topic, please check the Site Index
(scroll down to Bibliographies and Booklists).

The CCBC also maintains several listings of books related to Wisconsin, which identify books by Wisconsin authors and illustrators, or on Wisconsin-related themes and topics.

The CCBC has two recommended booklists that are available in print versions only:

  • CCBC Choices: our annual best-of-the-year list

  • Multicultural Literature for Children and Young Adults, Volumes 1 and 2 : a recommended listing of books by and about people of color

    (out of print)

The Charlotte Zolotow Award was established by the CCBC to recognize outstanding writing in a picture book for young children.
