A Wrinkle in Time


This novel is on the American Library Association list of the 100 Most Frequently Challenged Books of 1990–2000 at number 23.[16] Reasons given include the book's references to witches and crystal balls,[17] the claim that it "challenges religious beliefs",[18] and the listing of Jesus "with the names of great artists, philosophers, scientists, and religious leaders".[19]

A 2004 study found that it was a common read-aloud book for sixth-graders in schools in San Diego County, California.[20] Based on a 2007 online poll, the National Education Association named the book one of its "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children."[21] It was one of the "Top 100 Chapter Books" of all time in a 2012 poll by School Library Journal.[22]
