The list demonstrates the key role that children's literature can play across the curriculum, and in forwarding children's progress as readers.  The books are chosen because they support children learning to read and in their development as readers.  

You can see books sorted by collection, by age group, by author or by publisher.  You can search for an individual book or for a collection.  You can also build your own wishlist which you can then use to help you plan and purchase your school collections.
