UK Nominations for IBBY’s List of Outstanding Books for Young People with Disabilities 2019
The final list includes not only books that are intended for use by young people with disabilities but also books that depict young people with disabilities. There are three categories under which nominations can be made, all for books published from 2014 to March 2018:
Category 1: Books produced in special formats, such as Braille, sign language, PCS or Bliss symbols, tactile, and easy-to-read books, specifically written for young people with developmental, mental or language disabilities.
Category 2: Picture books from the regular production especially selected for young people with disabilities that also answer their particular needs through design, topics, illustrations and texts.
Category 3: Picture books and novels from the regular children’s book production that portray persons with disabilities.
IBBY UK has nominated 11 books to be put forward for consideration. See the full list here!
