Review quote

"The title gives it away: this index supplies an alphabetical list of books that have won or have been honored by one of seven awards that recognize excellence in literature for young readers by authors who are or who have provided content about Jewish, African-American, Latino, Caribbean, and Asian American cultures. The earliest award was founded in 1968-as one discovers in Part 1 of this tool where the awards are named and described-and includes titles published from this year forward. Part 2 offers bibliographic and award information for all titles, which are listed alphabetically. All entries include availability status and reading and interest levels that range from elementary to secondary. A subject index and an Authors, Editors, Illustrators, Translators index offer effortless navigation through the contents. The author describes this book as a tool for selection and acquisition of high-quality books to increase diversity through library connections. It is, in fact, surprising that such an index did not exist before now. Recommended." - Library Media Connectionshow more
