The ALA-Children's Book Council (CBC) Joint Committee is launching a new pilot bibliography to provide guidance to caregivers interested in finding titles for children who read at an advanced level. The committee is looking to library professionals, publishers, and anyone with a passion for child literacy to provide suggestions for this list, especially titles offering diverse characters and settings as well as by diverse authors and illustrators, and notable recent publications.

The list will have three sections:

*             Titles for Kindergartners/1st graders reading at a 3rd grade level
*             Titles for 2nd/3rd graders reading at a 5th grade level
*             Titles for 4th/5th graders reading at a 7th grade level

To submit title suggestions for this new book list, visit:  https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1hnHf5kS8zdxB6igkbrP1Lb3JgurQOPOJaKhvpEuHK8E/viewform

The CBC Joint Committee would greatly appreciate your thoughtful suggestions! The submission period will be open from May 16 to September 5, 2016. The committee, comprised of librarians and CBC member publisher employees, will review submissions to create a final list of titles for each category. The final list will be released in early 2017.

Please contact the CBC Director of Programming, Shaina Birkhead (shaina.birkhead at cbcbooks.org<mailto:shaina.birkhead at cbcbooks.org>), directly with any questions.
