Children's Literature Comprehensive Database

Children's Literature Comprehensive Database (CLCD) is a searchable database of more than 50,000 reviews of children's and young adult literature titles from education and library review journals such as Appraisal, ALAN Review, Five Owls, Kirkus, Kliatt, VOYA, and others. CLCD also includes the annotated entries from CCBC Choices for 1996 to the present. CCBC Choices is the annual best-of-the-year list created by professional staff of the Cooperative Children's Book Center of the School of Education at UW-Madison. The dates of reviews vary from source to source, with nothing available prior to 1991 at this time. (Updated monthly)
