The 1,700 titles and annotations are divided into the following categories: (1) books for young children, (2) traditional literature, (3) modern fantasy, (4) historical fiction, (5) contemporary realistic fiction, (6) poetry, (7) language, (8) social studies, (9) biography, (10) sciences, (11) fine arts, (12) crafts and hobbies, (13) sports and games, (14) holidays, and (15) professional books.
