Jane Addams Children’s Book Awards
The Jane Addams Children’s Book Awards were announced in late April of this year. The award is described thusly:
“The Jane Addams Children’s Book Awards are given annually to the children’s picture books and longer books published the preceding year that effectively promote the cause of peace, social justice, world community, and the equality of the sexes and all races as well as meeting conventional standards for excellence.”
The book award is the primary activity of the Jane Addams Peace Association.
