Call for Suggestions – Batchelder Award

ALSC Members are invited to suggest titles for the 2012 Mildred L. Batchelder Award given to an American publisher for a children’s book considered to be the most outstanding of those books originally published in a language other than English in a country other than the United States, and subsequently translated into English and published in the United States in 2011. Please remember that only books from this publishing year are under consideration for the 2012 award.
