About the NCTE's Orbis Pictus Awards

The NCTE Orbis Pictus Award® was established in 1989 to promote and recognize excellence in the writing of nonfiction for children. Orbis Pictus commemorates the work of Johannes Amos Comenius, Orbis Pictus—The World in Pictures(1658), considered to be the first book actually planned for children.
