Batchelder Award promotes international understanding.

The Mildred L. Batchelder Award is awarded to a United States publisher for a children's book considered to be the most outstanding of those books originating in a country other than the United States and in a language other than English and subsequently translated into English for publication in the United States during the preceding year.  Batchelder joined the ranks of the American Library Association in 1936 and spent the next 30 years working as an ambassador to the world on behalf of children and books, encouraging and promoting the translation of the world's best children's literature. Her life's work was "to eliminate barriers to understanding between people of different cultures, races, nations, and languages."
