IBNA- Iran’s Children Book Council introduced works for The International Board on Books for Young People (IBBY) Honour List 2020.
According to IBNA correspondent, the council made its selection among the works of the last two editions of Iran’s Children Books Council Awards. They were picked from various categories:
‘They all Saw a Cat’ by Brendan Wenzel translated by Kaivan Abidi Ashtiani, Fatemi Publishing
Original Works Section:

The IBBY Honour List is a biennial selection of outstanding, recently published books, honoring writers, illustrators and translators from IBBY member countries. The IBBY Honour List is one of the most widespread and effective ways of furthering IBBY's objective of encouraging international understanding through children's literature.
The titles are selected by the National Sections which can nominate one book for each of the three categories. For a country with a substantial and continuing production of children's books in more than one language, one book may be submitted for writing and translation in each official language.
Introducing these works provides a unique opportunity for Iran to introduce the best Iranian Children books to 77 countries members of IBBY.
The plaques of honor will be awarded at a ceremony in the 37th International Congress of Children and Young Adults Literature in Moscow, Russia.
