Watch the video tutorial below providing an overview of ways to find CCBC book recommendations on the CCBC web site, focusing on our booklists and the CCBC-Recommended Book Search.
We also have a Recommended Book Search Guide (pdf) with tips on searching the CCBC-Recommended Books database.
Additional information about the CCBC-Recommended Book Search:
The CCBC Recommended-Book Search includes titles we have recommended since the 1980 publishing year, when we began our annual CCBC Choices list. Some of the books we’ve recommended in the past* are no longer in print, and may have limited availability through public and school libraries. We include them for researchers and others interested in our work, which includes ongoing attention to books from mainstream and small and independent publishers focused on diversity. You can use the “Publication Date” filter to limit your search to newer books, or books published in a specific time period.
*The work of adding older Choices books to the recommended books database is ongoing.
