Diana Marks looks at children's and young adult book awards in depth. The history, award criteria, and a biography of the person behind each of the well-known awards is included. Also of interest are lists of the winners in each category, teaching and exploration activities, reproducible teaching aides, and a timeline of events leading up to the establishment of the award. Information about well-known awards is accompanied by information on the lesser known, Pura Belpre, Jane Addams, etc. Information is formatted in quick, easy-to-read tables and charts suitable for classroom duplication. Although some of this information is available online, this is a one stop handbook that contains lesser-known awards, and offers activities for enriching the study of each award, whether well-known or not. Grades K-8.
