The Schneider Family Book Awards honor an author or illustrator for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for child and adolescent audiences. The award is donated by Dr. Katherine Schneider. Three annual awards are presented for the best Teen, Middle School and Children’s Book.Last year I read several books that were previous Schneider Family Book Award winners, and I really enjoyed them. Once the award winners were announced, I found the middle grade and teen winners in my library system.
The Unlikely Hero of Room 13B by Teresa Toten is the teen winner.
