Excellence in Jewish Children’s Literature

When evaluating children’s books of Jewish content, book selectors, reviewers, and book award judges always look for outstanding literary and artistic quality. Equally important is the merit of the book’s Jewish content. Few books will meet all of the criteria for excellence identified in this guide but the books of Jewish content that librarians select, reviewers praise and judges award should approach the highest standards in both general literary criteria and those applied to Jewish children’s literature.
