Sydney Taylor Award

As taken from The Sydney Taylor Book Award Association of Jewish Libraries, the mission of this award is as follows: "The purpose of the Sydney Taylor Book Award is to encourage the publication of outstanding books of Jewish content for children, books, that exemplify, the highest literary standards while authentically portraying the Jewish experience. We hope that official recognition of such books will inspire authors, encourage publishers, inform parents and teachers, and intrigue young readers. We also hope that by educating readers about the Jewish experience, we can engender pride in Jewish readers while building bridges to readers of other backgrounds."

NOTE: If any professionals in this particular field have any additional information or insight to offer regarding the Sydney Taylor Award, I would be very interested to gain new knowledge and understanding.
