Book Recommendations

High School Recommendations

Lincoln Award Winners: Each year, a panel of Illinois high school librarians, teachers, public librarians and students determine the Abraham Lincoln Award Nominee List. The list contains adult and young adult fiction and nonfiction titles nominated by teachers, students, and librarians during the previous school year. This program encourages teens to read for pleasure and to become lifelong readers. 

We are 204: The WeAre204 List consists of 12 books that were selected by representatives from Waubonsie Valley, Metea Valley, and Neuqua Valley High Schools. The list will be promoted in all three buildings all year. The purpose of this reading program is to celebrate the varied stories, lifestyles, experiences, and backgrounds of the 204 high school community. 

Middle School Book Recommendations

Caudill Book Recommendations: The Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award is an annual award given to the author of the book voted most outstanding by students in grades four through eight in participating Illinois schools. The award is named in honor of Rebecca Caudill who lived and wrote in Urbana, Illinois, for nearly 50 years. 

Elementary Book Recommendations

Bluestem Books (3-5): The award is designed for students in grades 3-5 who are ready for longer titles than found on the Monarch list, but not quite ready for the sophistication of some of the Rebecca Caudill titles. Named in honor of Big Bluestem which is the state prairie grass, the award may include both timeless classics and current titles, as well as books that have appeared on Monarch and Rebecca Caudill lists.

Monarch List (Ages K-3): The Monarch is designed to encourage children to read critically and become familiar with children's books, authors, and illustrators. The program is open to all K-3 age children in Illinois.
