Her books have won numerous awards, among them a Newbery Medal (for Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry), four Coretta Scott King Awards, and a Boston Globe-Horn Book Award. Her book The Land was awarded the L.A. Times Book Prize and the PEN Award for Children's Literature.

"Taylor, a powerful storyteller, again combines authentic incidents to create a taut plot.... Her cry for justice always rings true". -- Kirkus Reviews
