Children's and Young Adult Literature | English Language and Literature
With the thousands of books published for children each year, it is impossible to include every worthy title. In this list we have tried to meet the interests of both genders and a variety of racial groups, putting first compelling plots in which young people demonstrate strong character. In addition, stories must be well-written, attention grabbing, and age appropriate.
