 Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards 

 

 

What are the Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards?

The Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards recognize excellence in children's literature for children and young adults.  


Who decides the winner?

Three children's literature professionals evaluate the books submitted by publishers and select winners in three categories: fiction and poetry, picture book, nonfiction.  The judges may name up to two honor books in each category, and they may honor a high quality book with a special citation.


When did the award begin?

The award began in 1967.  The awards are announced in the fall.  Acceptance speeches are published in the Horn Book Magazine in the Jan/Feb issue of the next year.


What special criteria are used to select this award?

Books to be considered must be published in the United States between June of the preceding year and May of the current year with the winner announced in the fall.  Publishers may submit up to eight books for each of the three categories.  New editions of previously published works are eligible.  Reissued editions, textbooks, e-books, and audiobooks will not be considered.


Why is it called the Boston Globe-Horn Book Awards?

The Horn Book Magazine, published bi-monthly,  is one of the oldest and most reputable sources for reviews of children's literature.  The title was taken from the early "hornbooks" used by Colonial American children to learn their A B C's.  


What does the award look like?

The winners each receive $500. and an engraved silver bowl.  The honor recipients are given an engraved silver plate.

     

All nominated titles listed.  Winner in bold.
