Jewish Children’s Book Awards: Winning literature tackles complex issues

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/books/article/jewish_childrens_book_awards_winning_literature_tackles_complex_issues_2011

After taking a look at the latest award winning literature for Jewish youth, one could easily conclude that the time has come to put aside K’Tonton and All of a Kind Family, and get real. Many of the winners and honor books recently awarded either the prestigious Sydney Taylor Book Award (by the Association of Jewish Libraries) or the National Jewish Book Award (from the Jewish Book Council) tackle subjects unheard of in Jewish children’s literature when author Sydney Taylor was alive.
