How does a book get onto the 100 Book Club List?

The basic list was pulled from a series of awards given to children’s books. We added any books in a series, i.e., if Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone was mentioned, then we included the other five (or six, depending on when you’re reading this).

So how does a book make it onto the list now that the basic list has been compiled?

We want the books on the list to be challenging, interesting reads. We think a book, to be considered, should

Look over this list. What have we left off that we should have included? Email your suggestions to

If you’re wondering exactly what the 100 Book Club is, look here for an explanation. Here’s an example of a reading journal blog that students will have. (Theirs will be behind the school system’s firewall.)

Looking for volunteers

Each of the 500+ books on this list needs to have a synopsis and three to five writing prompts to help students write their blog posts. If you would like to volunteer to do one, email, or download the review form here.
