    The Prix Albertine Jeunesse is a prize chosen for children, by children—that is, a reader’s choice award in which people between the ages of three and fourteen vote on their favorite book from a selection of Francophone literature. This award aims to facilitate a cultural exchange as well as encourage a love of learning languages and reading works in translation.

    This year’s theme is “growing up,” and the winners are below. Allons-y


    AGES 3-5

    Orianne Lallemand and Eleanore Thuillier, The Wolf Who Learned Self-Control (Le Loup qui Apprivoisait Ses Emotions)


    AGES 6-8

    Coralie Saudo and Kris Di Giacomo, My Dad at the Zoo (Mon Papa au Zoo)


    AGES 9-11

    Loïc Dauvillier and Marc Lizano, Hidden (L’enfent Cachée)
