We make finding excellent books easy!

Our Statement of Purpose:
The Children’s Literature Committee shall work to promote the use of high quality, engaging, culturally diverse, inclusive literature with all students in Wisconsin.

Our Work
We accomplish this through… 

  • critically evaluating books based on the quality of the literature, appeal for students, and value for K-8 classroom use by reading widely within our current reading cycle.
  • promoting children's literature through the annual conference, workshops, publications, and social media.
  • creating two annual recommendation lists, “Picture This” (picture books) & “Just One More Page” (early readers, graphic novels, and chapter books), as a central resource for Wisconsin educators to find the best of the newest books to select for use in libraries, schools, classrooms, curriculum, lessons, and read alouds.  *Our annual lists are revealed at the WSRA conference in February and can be found on our websites.
