Phoenix Award

The Children's Literature Association, an organization of teachers, scholars, librarians, editors, writers, illustrators, and parents interested in encouraging the serious study of children's literature, created the Phoenix Award as an outgrowth of the Association's Touchstones Committee. The award, given to a book originally published in the English language, is intended to recognize books of high literary merit.

Also, beginning in 2013, a companion award, the Phoenix Picture Book Award, has been given to titles that meet similar criteria as the original Phoenix Award.
