IBBY’s List of Outstanding Books for Young People with Disabilities 2019
An invitation to nominate books for IBBY’s List of Outstanding Books for Young People with Disabilities 2019
Every two years IBBY compiles an international catalogue of recently published outstanding books for young people with disabilities. We seek to identify well- written and illustrated books for and about young people with different abilities, presented with dignity, emphasizing the person rather than the disability itself.
IBBY UK is now looking for nominations of books published in the UK for the 2019 catalogue and is inviting nominations from anyone interested to make nominations of books they think are suitable.
Nominations can be made in three categories: books in special formats intended for young people with disabilities; books from the general run of publication whose presentation makes them suitable for use by young people with disabilities; and books in mainstream publishing that portray young people with disabilities.
The nominated books need to have been published in 2014 or later.
Please send nominations to Dr Rebecca Butler at firstname.lastname@example.org by 1 March 2018.
Further details can be found at www.ibby.org.
The International Board on Books for Young People is a unique international alliance of everyone interested in children’s literature: academics, librarians, writers, illustrators, publishers, teachers, literacy workers, booksellers, parents and others.
