Award Winning Children's Literature

Award Winning Children's Literature

This database provides a tailored reading list of quality children's literature or the means to find out if a book has won one of the indexed awards. The user is often intended to be a librarian or a teacher intervening for a child-reader; however, anyone may make use of it to find the best in children's literature including parents, book store personnel, and children and young adults themselves. DAWCL has over 5,000 records from 60 awards across six English-speaking countries (United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, and Ireland). Links provide an explanation about the awards, their countries, and the award’s criterion.. Naturally, DAWCL is always a work in progress, so results will change with the addition of new awards, award-winners, and my reading/indexing habits.
