Search by Age Category

This website aims to be a portal to find a world of children’s and YA books in translation.

Here you’ll find links to recommended book lists for age-related categories. Because we cater for a global audience, we try to use open definitions and not to be too specific about target ages. You can also use the categories on the right to search our blog.

Please contact us if you’d like to suggest a translated book list for us to add here.
