Goal Committee

The goal of this project is to produce a short list of outstanding books published each year for children in grades K-12 and originating outside the United States. Selections are based on the following criteria:


Criteria
Criteria Committee

The committee looks for books that

  • Represent the best of children’s literature from other countries

  • Introduce American readers to outstanding artists and writers from other countries

  • Help American children see the world from other points of view

  • Provide a perspective or address a topic otherwise missing from children’s literature in the U.S.

  • Exhibit a distinct cultural flavor

Committee members consider both content and presentation. This includes

  • Artistic and literary merit

  • Originality or creativity of approach

  • Distinctiveness of topic

  • Uniqueness of origin

  • Qualities that engage and appeal to children


Not every book will meet every criterion, but the committee expects all titles selected to
