Each year, School Library Journal creates a Best Of List, which covers picture books, middle grade, young adult, and nonfiction titles. A sample of those books are below:
Linked here are award winning books available from the Clemson University Libraries and PASCAL partner schools. Lists begin with 2010 books (2011 Award Year). Earlier books may also be available in the Catalog. Honorable Mention works are final round contenders for a given year that did not win. Select courses may allow their use when actual award winners are unavailable - consult with your course professor.
