The Trade Books project began in 1994 with a group of adult literacy professionals who reviewed books published for children and young adults that would be interesting and enjoyable for adult learners to read in the classroom or in tutoring situations.

The current committee of 16 educators selects and reviews approximately 75 new books each year.
