In the same spirit that we offered you our list of 10 Go-To Places for Quality Multicultural Resources, we’d also like to share with our list of top multicultural awards for children’s and YA literature. While Vamos a Leer is specifically focused on Latino literature, that’s just one piece of what should be represented in our classrooms. Below you’ll find links to book award sites that recognizes quality literature that goes beyond Latin America and the Latin@ experience. Again, know that this list only touches on some of the great awards that are out there. For a more comprehensive list of awards, including many which promote social justice and civil rights across cultures, see the CCBC website.
