The Irma Simonton Black and James H. Black Award for Excellence in Children's Literature (Irma Black Award) goes to an outstanding book for young children - a book in which text and illustrations are inseparable, each enhancing the other to produce a singular whole. The Irma Black Award is unusual in that children are the final judges of the winning book.


The four Irma Black Award finalists for books published in 2011 are:

All the Way to America written and illustrated by Dan Yaccarino (Knopf, Random House Children's Books)
I Want My Hat Back written and illustrated by Jon Klassen (Candlewick Press)
What Animals Really Like written and illustrated by Fiona Robinson (Abrams Books for Young Readers)
You Will Be My Friend written and illustrated by Peter Brown (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
