The Coretta Scott King Book Awards are given annually to outstanding African American authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults that demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values.
We, and the people at Free Period Press, thought a checklist would be a great motivator to encourage you and the kids in your life to read and celebrate the incredible books that have won Coretta Scott King Book Awards.
While the award has been going strong for over 50 years, this checklist is limited to winners of the last 20 years.
Illustrated by Sequoia Bostick and designed by Katie Daugherty, we hope these printables will find a home on your refrigerator, or next to your bookshelf!
Twenty of the books linked below, happy reading!
