Are you offering a Mock YMA (Youth Media Award) Election this year? Maybe your school, library or web-based discussion group is gathering a group of people to talk about the best young people’s books of the year with a discussion and mock election focusing on books which might be considered as winners for:
- Coretta Scott King
- Pura Belpré
- —in preparation for the annual Youth Media Awards.
These discussions are a great opportunity for all of us who love children’s literature to gather and discuss the awards and to learn more about some of the outstanding books published for youth in the past year.
