Russell Grant recipient is Bonnie Tulloch, a graduate student in the children’s literature program of the School of Library, Archival and Information Studies at the University of British Columbia.

The $1,000 grant will be presented to Bonnie Tulloch for her analysis of contemporary Canadian children’s and young adult novels that focus on island adventures. The resulting work will be titled “No ‘Man’ is an Island: Examining Island Imagery and its Relation to Female Identity in a Selection of Canadian Children’s and Young Adult Fiction.”

Bonnie Tulloch is a candidate in the Master of Arts in children’s literature program at the University of British Columbia. Her research interest and passion for children’s nonsense verse has led to her involvement in various community school projects that have targeted literacy development through poetry and art. Last summer she attended the Institute for World Literature at Harvard University where she developed an interest in children’s and young adult island-adventure novels.

The Frances E. Russell Grant jury consisted of Professor Joanne Findon (associate professor of English, Trent University), Dr. Gwyneth Evans (emeritus professor of Vancouver Island University) and chair Deirdre Baker (author, Toronto Star children’s books reviewer and assistant professor, Faculty of English, University of Toronto).

The Frances E. Russell Grant was established in memory of a longtime supporter of IBBY Canada. The $1,000 grant is intended “to initiate and encourage research in young people’s literature in all its forms” and is given in support of research for a publishable work (a book or a paper) on Canadian children’s literature. Past winners include Beverley Brenna, Paulette Rothbauer, Gail Edwards and Judith Saltman, Michelle Mulder, Michelle Cobban, André Gagnon, Ronald Jobe, Carole Carpenter, Linda Granfield and Françoise Lepage.  The 2014 call for submissions for the Frances E. Russell Grant will be issued in September, with a deadline in November.

IBBY Announces the Winners of the 2014 IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award

The Children’s Book Bank of Toronto among the winners

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: BOLOGNA (March 24, 2014) – The IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award, initiated by the International Board on Books for Young People and sponsored by the Japanese newspaper company the Asahi Shimbun, is presented to projects run by groups or institutions that are judged to be making a lasting contribution to reading promotion for children and young people.

The Award is given every two years to two projects and presented to the winners at the biennial IBBY Congress. It was a difficult task for the current jury to choose two winners from the fourteen nominations as all the projects were of great merit and complemented IBBY’s Mission Statement. Each nominated project targeted children who live in disadvantageous circumstances with no or little access to books. They are really Reading Promotion Projects!

The projects nominated for the 2014 IBBY-Asahi Award were:

    • International Book Art Festival: Back to Book, Yerevan; proposed by IBBY Armenia
    • The Children’s Book Bank, Toronto; proposed by IBBY Canada
    • ATD Quart Monde: Street Libraries, International; proposed by IBBY France
    • Room to Read, International; proposed by IBBY Germany
    • The Travelling Library: Knowledge Beyond, Piraeus; proposed by IBBY Greece
    • Le Biblioteche di Antonio, Rome; proposed by IBBY Italy
    • Palabra en la Montaña, Tepoztlán, Morelos; proposed by IBBY Mexico
    • Voice Keeper Children of the Forest, Lamas; proposed by IBBY Peru
    • The All-Poland Tactile Book Library, Lublin; proposed by IBBY Poland
    • The Reading Badge Crossing Boundaries to all kind of Minorities, National; proposed by IBBY Slovenia
    • PRAESA, Cape Town, South Africa; proposed by IBBY Sweden
    • Literacy Project, Lake Titicaca, Peru; proposed by IBBY USA
    • The Sullivan Literacy Center, Valdosta, GA; proposed by IBBY USA
    • BBVA Provincial Foundation Papagayo Program, Caracas; proposed by IBBY Venezuela

After an intensive discussion the jury made its choice from these fourteen projects, we are pleased to announce that the IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Awards for 2014 go to:

The Children’s Book Bank
Toronto, Canada
and
PRAESA, South Africa

The Children’s Book Bank was founded in 2007 in Toronto with the mission of supporting children’s literacy by recycling gently used children’s books and distributing them, free of charge, to children living in high-needs neighbourhoods. The area where the Book Bank is located is one of Toronto’s high density / low income neighbourhoods. It is also the first home to many new Canadians. There are 102 nationalities within a two kilometres radius of the Book Bank!

The Book Bank operates like a bookstore, but with one big difference: the books are free to children. There is no membership, registration or fee of any kind at the Book Bank. On each visit children are permitted to choose and take home to keep one book. They are encouraged to visit frequently and to build their own home libraries, which supports the development of book-reading activities, as well as a love of reading.

We selected the Children’s Book Bank as one of this year’s winners because it is a very simple system of book recycling, which in addition to getting books into the hands of children, effectively uses the skills of retired librarians and teachers. This idea has the possibility to be expanded and replicated in many places.

PRAESA: The Project for the Study of Alternative Education in South Africa, PRAESA is an independent unit for research and development, attached to the faculty of Humanities at the University of Cape Town. PRAESA was established in 1992 having emerged from the struggle against apartheid education.

PRAESA organizes various projects for development of bilingualism and bi-literacy in early childhood education, as well as running activities developed to raise the status of African languages in society.

It lobbies for language policy in education, especially the area of language policy within the education policy, and implementation at national and provincial government levels. Its focus is on a well-run mother tongue based bilingual system, that provides the best of both words for all children, where teachers and children communicate in a language they command and understand.

Currently PRAESA is researching how e-tablets can be used as tools to increase the stock of mother tongue reading materials, for the multilingual classroom and community. They are doing further studies to work out in which conditions e-tablets can be best used to help motivate and support reading for enjoyment.

PRAESA’s activities are in agreement with the basic philosophy of IBBY in that they value the child’s mother tongue. Their study of how to incorporate new media, such as tablets, is unique as a research and development programme focusing on bi-literacy and bilingualism in early childhood education.

This is the third time an organization in South Africa has won the IBBY-Asahi Reading Promotion Award. As the 2014 winner, the PRAESA projects and activities are especially significant because this year is the 20th anniversary of the abolition of apartheid.

IBBY warmly congratulates these two outstanding projects for their creative and effective approaches to helping children enter the world of books and reading.

The 2014 jury comprised:
Jury Chair Kiyoko Matsuoka (Japan), Marilar Aleixandre (Spain), Hasmig Chahinian (France), Nadia El Kholy (Egypt), Azucena Galindo (Mexico), Linda Pavonetti (USA) and Timotea Vrablova (Slovakia).

The prize money of US $10,000 for each winning project will be presented at the 34th IBBY Congress in Mexico City, at a special festive occasion on Friday, September 12, 2014 at the Papalote Children’s Museum in Mexico City.

The International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) is a non-profit organization that represents an international network of people from all over the world who are committed to bringing books and children together. It represents countries with well-developed book publishing and literacy programmes, and other countries with only a few dedicated professionals who are doing pioneer work in children’s book publishing and promotion.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Toronto (March 24, 2014) – IBBY Canada (International Board on Books for Young People, Canadian section) is pleased to announce that How To, illustrated and written by Julie Morstad (Simply Read Books, 2013), is the winner of the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award for 2013.

Julie Morstad received her BFA at Alberta College of Art and Design, and produces art for children’s books, CD and book covers, fabric, wallpaper and animation. Her other books include When You Were Small and Where You Came From. Julie lives in Vancouver with her husband and three kids.

The jury also noted two books on their shortlist for the 2013 Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award: Wild Berries, illustrated and written by Julie Flett (Simply Read Books, 2013) and The Man with the Violin, illustrated by Dušan Petričić and written by Kathy Stinson (Annick Press, 2013).

The jury for the Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award was comprised of Theo Heras, Children’s Librarian and Author (jury chair); Melanie Fishbane, MFA VCFA, Merchandiser Kids & Teens at Indigo Books, YA Author, and Coordinator Children’s Book Reviews at National Reading Campaign; Allison Taylor McBryde, Adjunct Professor, School of Library, Archival and Information Studies at the University of British Columbia and retired Children’s Librarian. The jury’s comments on How To:

How To is intelligent. It is a book that is raucous and quiet, active and contemplative, child-focused and ageless. It presents a unique perspective on “seeing” things and opens up all sorts of possibilities. The book is masterfully designed and the colour palette is consistent throughout. The font is clean and perfectly laid-out. Even the endpapers play a role: solid blocks of yellow, rose, blue and green hint at the colour within. How To is whimsical, light as a breeze – a book to look at again and again.

The IBBY Canada Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver Picture Book Award, established in 1985, honours one of Canada’s pre-eminent book illustrators. Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver left funds in her will to annually recognize outstanding artistic talent in Canadian picture books; the winner receives $1,000.

IBBY, the International Board on Books for Young People, founded in 1953, represents an international network of people committed to bringing books and children together. IBBY Canada is one of over 70 national sections worldwide. IBBY Canada, founded in 1980, is a volunteer organization promoting quality French and English Canadian children’s literature nationally and internationally.

Le prix IBBY Canada Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver est décerné à l’illustratice Julie Morstad pour How To

POUR DIFFUSION IMMÉDIATE : IBBY Canada (Centre international de la littérature pour la jeunesse, section canadienne) est heureux d’annoncer que le livre How To, illustré et écrit par Julie Morstad (Simply Read Books, 2013), est le gagnant du prix Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver en 2013 .

Les commentaires du jury sur How To:

How To est un livre intelligent. Il s’agit d’un livre qui inspire à la fois l’énergie et le calme, l’action et la contemplation. Il est axé sur l’enfant et sans âge à la fois. Il présente un point de vue unique sur la façon de voir les choses et ouvre toutes sortes de possibilités. Le livre est conçu avec brio et la palette de couleurs est conforme dans l’ensemble. La typographie est propre et parfaitement disposée. Même les pages de garde jouent un rôle : des blocs solides de jaune, rose, bleu et vert font allusion aux couleurs de l’histoire. How To est fantaisiste, léger comme une brise – un livre à regarder encore et encore.

Le prix IBBY Canada Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver, créé en 1985, vise à reconnaître le talent artistique exceptionnel d’un illustrateur canadien de livres pour enfants publié en anglais ou en français. Elizabeth Mrazik-Cleaver – laisse dans son testament des fonds pour la remise annuelle d’un prix visant à reconnaître les qualités artistiques d’un ouvrage illustré pour la jeunesse au Canada; le destinataire reçoit 1000 $.
