I Talk Like a River wins Schneider Family Book Award

This year the Schneider Family Book Award went to I Talk Like a River by Jordan Scott with illustrations by Sydney Smith.

The award celebrates an author or illustrator for a book that embodies an artistic expression of the disability experience for both child and adolescent audiences. It’s administered by the American Library Association alongside the prestigious Caldecott Medal.

I Talk Like a River follows a young boy struggling to communicate because of his stutter. The book is based on Scott’s personal experience.
