Conference Proceeding: The Wonderful World of International Children’s Books

The mission of IBBY (The International Board of Books for Young People) is to promote international understanding through children's books, to give children everywhere the opportunity to have access to books with high literary and artistic standards, to encourage the publication and distribution of quality children's books (especially in developing countries) and to stimulate research and scholarly works in the field of children's literature. They are also the sponsors of the prestigious Hans Christian Anderson Award. This session will connect those interested in the issues and trends of international publishing with the interests of Jewish children’s librarians, especially in regard to Israel and Jewish-themed books. A bibliography will be provided.
