Many of the titles on these lists are in LRC kits.  As new titles are published, they will be added to the appropriate sections of each list, i.e., Picture Books, Novels, Non-fiction.  Note that all titles are at the teacher’s discretion, especially for the more sensitive topics.  For novels, the first Interest Level (IL) rating is from the publisher.  If there is an additional interest level rating or two, then they are from the reviewing journals, which tend to more accurately gage the appropriate interest level.  Unlinked themes are “in the works”.

Note that due to copyright any links to ebooks/audiobooks in public libraries are only accessible at home.  Access at school to electronic resources, such as Tumblebooks and other similar products, require each school to have a yearly site license.
