Children's Literature: 2020s Diversity Awards

For students taking children's literature classes

About the Awards

The American Library Association gives book awards in several categories that honor diverse populations and cultures in young adult and children's literature. I have selected a few of these awards to highlight and include in the TCU Library Collection.

The Corretta Scott King Awards are given to African American authors and illustrators who demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values.

The Pura Belpre Book Award is presented annually to a Latino/Latina writer and illustrator whose work best portrays, affirms, and celebrates the Latino cultural experience in an outstanding work of literature for children and youth.

The Schneider Family Book Awards honor an author or illustrator for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for child and adolescent audiences.

 The Stonewall Book Awards honor books for exceptional merit relating to the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender experience.

2022

Stonewall Book Awards include both young adult and children's books. For 2022, the Stonewall winner and additional honor books fall into the young adult category. See the Stonewall winner and additional honor books on the Young Adult Literature research guide
