Announcement and Results from The Book Fair of Bologna in Italy

Dear Madams and Sirs,

We are delighted to inform you that the 2016 Jury of the BolognaRagazzi Award assigned to your Publishing House a special mention for the DISABILITY category for the book:


Text by Michael Rosen, illustrations by Solène Négrerie

Les Doigts Qui Rêvent, Talant, France, 2015

The Jury members - Silvana Sola (Italy), Roberto Parmeggiani (Italy), Beatrice Vitali (Italy), Dolores Prades (Brazil), Claude Combet (France), Wally De Doncker (Belgium), Silvana Amato, (Italy), Emiliano Ponzi (Italy) - motivated their choice with the short declaration hereunder:

"A book addressing particular disabilities, one that enables heightened experience. The marvellous text by Michael Rosen lends itself to understanding and enjoyment by children with many special needs. Published by an association promoting tactile books, the volume brings together braille, sound and sign language, allowing young children to reach beyond the confines of their disabilities."

Award ceremony on April 4th in Bologna
