NCTE Notable Poetry Books

The National Council for Teachers of English's Poetry Committee, in addition to selecting the recipient for its bi-annual Award for Excellence in Poetry for Children award, compiles an annual list of notable poetry books for children.

Also, starting in 2016, a companion list, the NCTE Notable Verse Novels, was compiled.
