Books & Authors
The following booklists include some of our favorite titles for children and young adults, representing a wide range of cultures and languages. In addition, you can watch video interviews with a number of the authors and illustrators who are featured in our Meet the Authors section and browse our books for educators in the Professional Booklists section. These booklists and interviews were created with the generous support of the American Federation of Teachers.
Note: The links to Amazon.com provide more information about each book. If you choose to buy a book from Amazon, part of the sale will support this project. Thank you!

It's important for children and teens to have access to books that reflect their experiences, as well as the experiences of their classmates. Take a look at our booklists and resources for a wide range of titles representing diverse cultures and backgrounds, along with guidelines for selecting appropriate titles for libraries and classrooms.
