Authors, illustrator win AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books

Four authors and an illustrator of children's science books won the 2006 AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books for recently published works that promote scientific literacy, are scientifically sound, and foster an understanding and appreciation of science in readers of all ages.

The prizes are being awarded for individual books in four categories: Children's Science Picture Books, Middle Grades Nonfiction Science Books, Popular Science for High School Readers and Hands-on Science/Activity Book. The winners were selected by a judging panel, and will receive a cash prize of $1,500 and a plaque.

"The prizes are intended to draw attention to the importance of science books that will encourage young people to read them not only for information but also for enjoyment," said Alan I Leshner, chief executive officer at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and executive publisher of its journal, Science.

The AAAS/Subaru SB&F Prize for Excellence in Science Books celebrates outstanding science writing and illustration for children and young adults. AAAS and Subaru co-sponsor these prizes to promote science literacy by drawing attention to the importance of good science writing and illustration.

"Subaru would like to congratulate the award winners for their outstanding contribution to science writing and illustration," said Rick Crosson, vice president, marketing, Subaru of America Inc. "This type of contribution is one that is recognized today, but can be appreciated for generations to come."
