The Teachers' Choices Project: K-2

The Teachers' Choices Project 2009 illuminates the idea that good book reach out and tap us on the shoulder to get our attention. Each year since 1989, the International Reading Association's Teachers' Choice project has identified outstanding trade books, published for children and adolescents, that teachers find exceptional for curriculum use. Parents, also, will find books good for reading aloud. Below are some of the books recommended:
