The awards recognize quality books for children and young adults that contribute meaningfully to an understanding of East and Southeast Asia. During the workshop, educators will review quality books for the grades 2-8 classroom and will read and interact with the text, share responses with other readers, and take home books to keep and use in their school to share with students.
