Looking to improve representation of Native Americans in your collection? Including some graphic novels and some books that take place now, not in the past? The 2015 children's, middle grade, and young adult of the Wordcraft Circle Book Award might be just what you're looking for!

Details and book covers for books in the children's and teen sections that have been reviewed on the American Indians in Children's Literature blog:

And a complete list of the winners in all categories is here: http://www.wordcraftcircle.org/honors-awards/

Debbie Reese, enrolled in the Nambe Pueblo tribe, says, "Buy these books for your libraries! They'll provide the mirrors we seek for Native kids, and the windows onto Native life for readers who aren't Native or of the specific tribe any given book focuses on."
