Looking for good books set in France..or with a male main character for an 8 year old boy? Look no further than the “Database of Award-Winning Children’s Literature” http://www.dawcl.com/introduction.html compiled by librarian Lisa R. Barkle. This database is very easy to use with dropdown menus within searchable topics including:
age of reader
gender of the protagonist
ethnicity/nationality of characters or tale languages in the story other than English
The results contain title, author/illustrator, a concise annotation, listing of the award won, year of publication, and format of the book. The nearly 7,000 record database includes a great explanation for the searchable topics and the listing and calendar of over 60 included awards. Be sure to bookmark it today!
