The booklist is fully annotated throughout and is updated every two years.

Three main collections of books are detailed in the booklist: Learning to Read, a Literature Collection and an Information Book Collection.The selection of books within The Core Book List is based on their successful use in classrooms and is subdivided into age specific sections.
