First, I would like to celebrate that our 2021 list includes highlighted representation of 8 different disabilities; 4 own voices authors, including the 3 winners!, + 1 own voice contributor; and 4 creators of color! But without further adieu, here are the 2021 Schneider Family Book Award Winners:
I am so proud of these choices. Have you read any of these? If not, what do you plan on reading?
