Hello ALSC!
 

ALSC personal members are invited to suggest titles for the 2018 Batchelder Award given to an American publisher for a children's book considered to be the most outstanding of those books originally published in a foreign language in a foreign country and subsequently published in English in the United States during 2017. Please remember that only books from this publishing year are under consideration for the 2018 award. Publishers, authors and illustrators may not suggest their own books.
