The Prix Albertine Jeunesse, a reader’s choice award, invites children between 3 and 11 years of age to choose their favorite book from a selection of works of Francophone youth literature that are available in English translation. The prize seeks to reinforce the practice and love of reading among children.
All books from the prize selection are available at Albertine in both languages. The theme for the 2019 selection was “heroes and heroines”, and offered different books for each age category: 3-6 years old, 7-9 years old, and 10-11 years old.
Stay tuned for the 2020 selection. Books will be available at AFSeattle in early February. Members can borrow 1 title at a time for a maximum of 7 days. Every book is available in French and in English.
