Database of Award-Winning Children's Literature

Details

Popularity: Page View: 504 Site Visit: 13

Database that lets you create tailored reading lists of children's books based on age, subject, format, genre, language, characters, and more. The purpose of this database is to create a tailored reading list of quality children's literature or to find out if a book has won one of the indexed awards. I expect the user to be a librarian or a teacher intervening for a child-reader, however anyone may make use of it to find the best in children's literature including parents, book store personnel, and children and young adults themselves.

Description: Database of Award-Winning Children's Literature
DAWCL has over 8,000 records from 86 awards across six English-speaking countries (United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, England, and Ireland). Click the link Explanation of Awards above to see a list of awards, their countries, and a brief explanation. Each book is indexed to some degree so users can find it using the form search or the keyword search. As I read a book, I index it more fully. Naturally, DAWCL is always a work in progress, so results will change with the addition of new awards, award-winners, and my reading/indexing habits.
