to promote and recognize excellence in nonfiction writing.
The award is named for Orbis Pictus (The World in Pictures) by Johann Comenius,
published in 1657 and considered to be the first informational book written specifically for children.
First presented in 1985, it is given to the author, or the estate of the author, of a book for children first published twenty years earlier that did not win a major award at the time of its publication but which, from the perspective of time, is deemed worthy of special attention. Since 1989, honor books have also been named.
