Notable Social Studies
Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People is a reading list of exceptional books for use in social studies classrooms, selected by twelve social studies educators. This is an annual project of the National Council for the Social Studies and the CBC.
This bibliography features K-12 annotated titles published in the previous calendar year, selected by a book review committee appointed by the NCSS. Titles are grouped by subject, including: Biography; Contemporary Concerns; Environment and Ecology; Folktales; Geography, Peoples, and Places; History, Life, and Culture in the Americas; Reference; Social Interaction and Relationships; World History and Culture; and Economics. Each annotation contains bibliographic data and a brief description.
NCSS members interested in joining the review committee should complete the interest form and submit it to NCSS.
Full-color copies of the annotated list are available for $5 per copy (includes S&H). Please make checks payable to the Children's Book Council and send to:
