Children’s Book Week: May 2-8, 2016

Have you ever loved a children’s book so much you wished there was a holiday to celebrate it? You aren’t alone; the Children’s Book Council, the sponsor of the national Children’s Book Week, claims that “children’s books and literacy are life-changers” and children, teenagers, adults, students, librarians, teachers, parents, and many more agree! The love of children’s books isn’t exactly new; as early as 1913, the librarian for the Boy Scouts of America lobbied for a nation-wide, week-long celebration of children’s literature. In 1919, that dream became a reality, and Children’s Book Week was born.  In 2016, the Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader, a non-profit dedicated to promoting literacy in young people, will work together from May 2 through 8 to mark the 97th Children’’s Book Week.

If you want to observe Children’s Book Week, check for an official event in your state! For the 3rd year in a row, all 50 states will hold events and invite children’s book authors and illustrators to bookstores, schools, and libraries to speak, read, and greet their fans. If you can’t make it to an event but still want to participate, download the free 2016 Children’s Book Week bookmark, this year designed by award-winning author and illustrator CeCe Bell, to use in your own celebration.

This month, the S-Collection blog bibliography will focus on books that have been selected for the Children’s and Teen Choice Book Awards, which are sponsored by the Children’s Book Council and announced yearly during Children’s Book Week.  In honor of young readers, the Children’s and Teen Choice Book Awards are the only awards where winners are selected by children and teens. Award categories include K-2nd grade, 3-4th grade, 5-6th grade, Teens, Debut Authors, and Illustrator. Check out lists of all the winners and finalists of past years here and check back in mid-May to see the list of 2016 winners!

Reading Around the World: International Children’s Books in Translation


July is a great time to celebrate children’s books from around the world. Not only is it Foreign Language Month in the United States, the Summer Olympics — which foster a spirit of international cooperation among nations — begin on July 27. Our Guide to Locating Foreign Language Children’s Books may be helpful, but finding English-language translations of international children’s books can sometimes be tricky. This guide provides information about related organizations and awards, search tips for finding English-language translations in the library catalog, and a short bibliography of relevant books.

Children’s Literature Review has articles about several related topics, including “International Children’s Literature,” “Translation of Children’s Literature,” and children’s literature in specific regions. Information about accessing these articles can be found in our forthcoming guide Subject Essays in Children’s Literature Review.
Organizations, Booklists, and Awards

IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People)
An international organization that promotes international understanding through children’s literature, children’s access to books, and to support communities of adults who work with children’s literature. IBBY sponsors the Hans Christian Andersen Awards, presented biennially, which honor the lifetime achievements of children’s authors and illustrators from around the world. IBBY also publishes the biennial IBBY Honor List, which honors the best of its member nations’ recently published children’s books, andBookbird, an international journal that publishes peer-reviewed articles about children’s literature around the world.

USBBY (United States Board on Books for Young People)
The U.S. chapter of IBBY, USBBY uses children’s books to foster international understanding and goodwill among nations. USBBY publishes the Outstanding International Books (OIB) List that honors books “published or distributed in the United States that originated or [were] first published in a country other than the U.S.”

Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award
Presented annually by the Swedish government in honor of the woman who created the beloved Pippi Longstocking books, the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award is the largest children’s literature award in the world. It honors authors, illustrators, storytellers, and reading advocates of any language or nationality who promote “children’s rights at the global level” through their work with children’s literature.

Batchelder Award
This award is presented by the Association of Library Services to Children (ALSC) and honors the publisher of “the most outstanding children’s book originally published in a language other than English in a country other than the United States, and subsequently translated into English for publication in the United States.” The award was named for children’s librarian and former ALSC president, Mildred L. Batchelder, who promoted international children’s books in translation in the U.S. and worldwide.
Search Tips

Finding translated books in the catalogs can be challenging. There are several ways to find English-language translations of international books. It may take a little digging and some creative Googling to find them

Option 1: Do an Advanced Search using “translat*” as a keyword AND “juvenile literature” or “juvenile fiction” as a subject.

Option 2: Do a basic search using “bilingual books” AND “juvenile fiction” or “juvenile literature” as subject words.

Option 3: Do a basic search using “children’s books in translation” as a keyword.

Option 4: Do a basic search using “children’s literature — translation into English” as a subject.

To find books originally published in a specific language or country, combine one of the search terms listed above with the name of the language or country (e.g., “Chinese” or “Germany”) as a keyword.

Not all of the results produced by these searches will actually be international children’s books translated into English. Some results won’t be relevant to your search, some will be books about translation, and some will be children’s books that have been translated into English from other languages. It’s important to look at the results carefully to make sure the items are the kind of resource you’re looking for.

Once you find a book that’s been translated into English, it can sometimes be tricky to determine the book’s original language and country of origin. Sometimes the original language will be mentioned in the catalog’s full description of title and author information. It may also be available under the “More Details” tab. A Google search for the author or publisher may also provide answers, especially if you can find their official web sites.
