The books in this section of da Shop have been selected because they are recognized for their superior quality as a work targeting children and young adult readers. Works from local Hawai‘i publishers that have received special distinction are also mixed throughout the area.
Many of the titles available are winners of the Caldecott Medal (awarded annually by the American Library Association, to the artist of the most distinguished American picture book for children). The listings span the generations and feature long-standing classics, as well as timely new comers.
Each of the national/international books here have received starred reviews from School Library Journal and other prominent sources.
* The list of titles on display changes regularly, so if you do not see what you are looking for please ask a staff member for the title you would like and we will access our database to find it for you.
