Three Quarto Books Listed on the Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People 2017

January 24, 2017

Three Quarto Titles have been selected as part of the Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People 2017 in the US. This annual cooperative project of the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) and the Children’s Book Council aims to gather “an annual reading list of exceptional books for use in social studies classrooms, selected by social studies educators.”

The selection committee looks for books that emphasize human relations, represent a diversity of groups and are sensitive to a broad range of cultural experiences, present an original theme or a fresh slant on a traditional topic, are easily readable and of high literary quality, and have a pleasing format and, when appropriate, illustrations that enrich the text.

We are very proud to have the following three titles selected on the list:

  • Amelia Earhart – Frances Lincoln Children’s Books
  • Mabrook! A World of Muslim Weddings – Frances Lincoln Children’s Books
  • The Hello Atlas – Wide Eyed Editions

 A preview of the Notable Social Studies list is available on the CBC site. 

 Quarto had four titles selected in the 2016 list.
