Children's Literature

We make finding excellent books easy!

The WSRA Children's Literature Committee members dedicate themselves to reading widely in order to evaluate the newest books published each year. This is done to recommend the most interesting and valuable books for educators and children to read. The committee considers titles published during the 15 months prior to the convention calendar year and evaluates books based on quality, authenticity, appeal for students, and value for classroom use.

The committee creates two lists to help educators select titles for use in their specific areas. The "Just One More Page" list highlights the committee's recommendations for the best of the newest chapter books through eighth grade, while "Picture This" highlights the recommendations for the best of the newest picture books. The lists are revealed at the annual WSRA conference in February and can be found after the convention on our websites.
