Recommended for Schools
Welcome to BC Books for Schools and Indigenous Books for Schools, a combined database of BC-published books designed for teachers, educators, and librarians in the K–12 school system.
Each book has been selected from publisher submissions by teacher-evaluators, and reviewed for relevance to K–12 curricula in BC and Canada, appropriateness of reading level, and suitability of content for the K–12 classrooms.
We also evaluate each Indigenous book for Indigenous Voice. Find out more about our unique evaluation and annotation process here.
