Irma Black Award Semi-Finalist Package 2019


The Irma Simonton Black and James H. Black Award for Excellence in Children’s Literature (Irma Black Award) goes to an outstanding book for young children—a book in which text and illustrations are inseparable, each enhancing and enlarging on the other to produce a singular whole. The Irma Black Award is unusual in that children are the final judges of the winning book.

These 4 titles are the sem-finalist for this year's award! Get this cost-saving bundle (normally $71.96) to vote with your class.
