I’m Your Neighbor Books Loves Social Action

Happy Valentine’s Day from I’m Your Neighbor Books and Author Saadia Faruqi!

Here at I’m Your Neighbor Books, we LOVE when book characters, and thus readers, are inspired to ACT in their communities for JUSTICE and CHANGE.

That is why we awarded Saadia Faruqi and HarperCollins the 2022 Social Action Book Award for Yusuf Azeem Is Not a Hero.

The Social Action Book Award honors a children’s picture book or novel that inspires readers to not only read, feel, and empathize, but to envision making changes within themselves and their communities. The 2023 Book Award winners will be awarded on 4/30/23.
