Award-Winning Children and Youth Books

    Each year approx. 3.500 books by German authors are published in Germany for children and young adults.

    Many cities and institutions endow literature awards to promote important new publications. Interesting reading should be encouraged among children and young adults; authors and illustrators will be supported by the awards.

    A selection of the awarded books from Germany is available at the library of Goethe-Institut Hongkong for loan. In addition, we also provide the English or Chinese copy if possible.

    The awarded books are listed in German Literary Awards.

    Meanwhile, Book Market gives you further information on publishing houses and a selection of periodicals on children's literature in Germany.
