How Do We Choose Our Books?

The books in the Quebec Reading Connection collection have been selected with great care. Each title has been considered for quality of language, subjects and themes; respectful presentation of values reflected in our society; as well as standing in comparison with the entire collection. This rigorous process ensures the quality and diversity of the recommended titles, so that each book reaches multiple readers.

The titles are chosen by committee, including, teachers, library personnel, consultants, and writers from the ELA and ESL communities.
