    Teachers' Choice • Book List 2015
    Since 1989, the International Literacy Association’s Teachers’ Choices project has identified outstanding trade books published in the last year that teachers themselves choose as being exceptional for curriculum use. Parents will also find the list invaluable, as it provides excellent choices for reading aloud or for help answering important questions prompted by children’s experiences as they grow up.  See this year's list  HERE.
