熊猫英文图书奖(Panda Book Awards) 始于2008年。当时,来自北京的几大国际学校的图书管理员们,为了帮助孩子们找到当前流行的,受欢迎的书目,组成了熊猫奖委员会(Panda Awards Steering Committee)。 首先,这些老师们,自己先读各种书,不同年龄段,不同题材,不同流派,不同风格。之后,一起讨论,评价,筛选,同时也参考其他老师,学生的推荐。最后,列出一份精挑细选的,紧跟图书界国际潮流的,涵盖多样主题的,英文进阶图书清单。一共四个年龄段,每个段,8到10本书。

从暑假起,孩子们就开始读。等中国新年假回来后,开始投票,一个年龄段选出一本最受大家喜爱的。这就是熊猫英文图书奖,上一年度的评选结果如下:▼


8年来,熊猫英文图书奖的影响力不断上升。开始时,还只在北京的国际学校圈里流行,发展到上一届,来自6个国家,40多所国际学校,5700多名学生,参与了投票。


那么今年,在新一轮书单中,哪一本,将是你的最爱呢?

Enormous Smallness: A Story of E. E. Cummings

故事简介:

An illustrated, brief overview of the life of E. E. Cummings. Here E.E.'s life is presented in a way that will make children curious about him and will lead them to play with words and ask plenty of questions as well. Lively and informative, the book also presents some of Cummings's most wonderful poems, integrating them seamlessly into the story to give the reader the music of his voice and a spirited, sensitive introduction to his poetry.

这是一本介绍美国诗人肯明思 (E.E. Cummings) 的书。奇妙处在于,既生动又详细地描述肯明思的这一生,同时,也润物细无声地激发孩子们的思考,让他们问出一连串的问题。书中所节选的诗歌,更是一步一步引导孩子们去体验文字的神奇力量。


找来度娘,简单介绍一下这位诗人,肯明思1915年毕业于哈佛大学,毕业的演说以《新艺术》为题,对现代艺术,主要是立体主义,未来主义的绘画,作了大胆的肯定。


第一次世界大战期间,肯明思参加过救护车队在法国战地的工作,进过集中营,之后用超现实主义手法,把这段经历写进《巨大的房间》一书。战后在巴黎和纽约学习绘画,并开始写诗,善于用辛辣的讥讽,表达他对现实生活中丑恶面的蔑视和挑战。肯明思把现代资本主义社会中野蛮的争夺,感情上的冷漠,行为中的伪善称为“非人类”或“非世界”,以漫画式的笔调,加以嘲弄和鞭挞。


肯明斯有些诗集的题名离奇古怪, 诗行参差不齐, 在语法和用词上也是别出心裁。词语任意分裂,标点符号异乎寻常,除了强调一般不用大写,将“I”写成“i”, 将自己的名字写成了“e.e.cummings”, 因此他又常常被称为“小写的肯明思” 。



Somebody on This Bus Is Going to Be Famous

故事简介:

During a torrential rainstorm, a school bus goes off the road. With the driver unconscious, it is up to her passengers to try to rescue each other and go for help.

What if it’s something even more extraordinary? After all, more than a few superheroes’ careers began when they turned green. Could this be a sign that he’s meant for something greater? Rory is going to find out - and that’s going to start with escaping from the hospital. 

Rory莫名其妙全身变绿后,就被送到了研究所。当众多科学家百思不得其解时,Rory也产生各种疑问:和基因有关?和病毒有关?和自己吃的东西有关?可是如果都不是呢?难道这代表着自己要去做一些惊天动地的大事?毕竟有好几个人在变成超级英雄前也是全身都变绿了。。。Rory想要弄个明白,那么,第一步就要想办法从医院的研究所里逃出来。

As the end of summer nears and her first roller derby bout (and junior high!) draws closer, Astrid realizes that maybe she is strong enough to handle the bout, a lost friendship, and middle school… in short, strong enough to be a roller girl.

在她十二年的大部分时间里,Astrid和她的好朋友Nicole都形影不离。后来Astrid爱上了轮滑,还报名参加了轮滑夏令营。可是Nicole不愿一起去,她选择去跳舞。于是,两个发小就这么分开,各做各的。这样的情形让Astrid感到很纠结,一方面,自己得努力跟上营地里那些大姐姐们的节奏,另一方面,还得维持好和Nicole的关系,不至于两人变得更生疏。暑假结束前,Astrid有场轮滑比赛要打。日子一天天接近时,Astrid也逐渐意识到,或许自己并没有那么弱,她是可以处理好眼下这一切的,比赛也好,朋友相处也好,中学生活也好,更重要的是,做一个真正的roller girl!

Roller Girl出版后就获得了五星评级,也是2016年纽伯瑞儿童文学奖银奖作品之一。作者Victoria Jamieson巧妙地将各种主题融入到故事中,关于友谊,关于坚持,关于girl power (女孩力量)!



Echo

Lost and alone in a forbidden forest, Otto meets three mysterious sisters and suddenly finds himself entwined in a puzzling quest involving a prophecy, a promise, and a harmonica. 

Decades later, Friedrich in Germany, Mike in Pennsylvania, and Ivy in California each, in turn, become interwoven when the very same harmonica lands in their lives. All the children face daunting challenges: rescuing a father, protecting a brother, holding a family together. And ultimately, pulled by the invisible thread of destiny, their suspenseful solo stories converge in an orchestral crescendo. 

Otto在深林中迷路,幸运地是,他被三个神秘女孩救了下来。了解到她们是因为一个咒语被囚禁在这里,Otto答应这三个女孩,会把她们的灵魂放到一支口琴里带走出深林。

在讲故事的同时,《回声》这本书,也将大的历史背景融入其中:德国纳粹的崛起,美国经济的大萧条,以及二战的爆发。作者Pam Ryan,无论在故事体裁,表现形式,还是在叙述方式上,都进行了一次独特创新,让人惊叹,原来故事还可以这样写的!同样,这部作品,也获得了2016年纽伯瑞儿童文学奖银奖。
