Welcome! The 2X2 Committee‘s charge is to produce a list of 20 recommended books for children, age two to grade two. You can help with our statewide promotion of the reading list by introducing it in the following locations:

• Public libraries
• School libraries
• Primary care facilities
• Day care centers
• Early childhood centers
• Hospitals
• Women, Infant and Children (WIC) sites
• Health Department Clinics
• Head Start locations

The master list books, all recommended by one or more reviewing sources, should be evaluated in terms of each library’s selection policy. It is not mandatory that a school or public library purchase all titles listed.
