We are thrilled to see Under the Great Plum Tree on Bank Street College‘s list of the Best Books of the Year 2021 for under 5s. In choosing books for the annual list, committee members consider literary quality and excellence of presentation as well as the potential emotional impact of the books on young readers. Other criteria include credibility of characterization and plot, authenticity of time and place, age suitability, positive treatment of ethnic and religious differences, and the absence of stereotypes!
