Batchelder Award – Call for Suggestions

Books are arriving and the 2021 Batchelder Award committee is busily reading, but we need your help in ensuring we are identifying the very best in children’s literature published in 2020.  Please consider suggesting a title to the committee for consideration.  Visit the Batchelder Award page, log into your ALA account, and fill out the suggestion form.  It’s that easy!

The Batchelder Award is awarded to a United States publisher for a children’s book considered to be the most outstanding of those books originating in a country other than the United States and in a language other than English and subsequently translated into English for publication in the United States during the preceding year.

More information can be found on the Submission Process page and FAQ’s about ALSC’s Book & Media Awards pages.

Hurry – suggestions close on October 31, 2020!
