to the Prizes!
AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books
celebrates outstanding science writing and illustration for children
and young adults. The prizes are meant to encourage the writing
and publishing of high-quality science books for all age groups.
SB&F believes that through good science books this
generation, and the next, will have a better understanding and
appreciation of science.
prizes began in 2005 by looking back on decades of outstanding
science books and honoring
five authors and one illustrator
for their significant and lasting contribution to children's and
young adult science literature and illustration. Beginning in
2006, the AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize began honoring recently
published, individual science books.
