This will be the seventh year in which you can choose a favorite book to win the CHILDREN’S CHOICE BOOK AWARD. The award is given by the Children’s Book Council.
You’ll find the list of books in the running for the award at the link above. The voting continues into May, so you have plenty of time to read all of the books in your age bracket. The winners will be announced during Children’s Book Week, May 12-18. When you visit the Children’s Book Week site, you’ll find cool freebies:
the official bookmark you can print out by nonfiction illustrator, Steve Jenkins
the official poster by Fancy Nancy artist, Robin Priess Glasser. You can request as many of these as you need.
You can also find out above local events that you can participate in. Most likely your school or a local library will be planning something special during Children’s Book Week–because we all know how very special both books and children are!
And books for kids are the absolute best!!!
Happy reading. 🙂

From the CHILDREN’S BOOK COUNCIL:
Since 1975, the Children’s Book Council and the International Reading Association have sponsored Children’s Choices, where publishers submit some 700 titles to be evaluated and voted on by 10,000 children throughout the school year. This year, CBC is opening the contest up to children across the country. Kids can cast their votes for favorite books, author, and illustrator at bookstores, school libraries, and online through May 4. Winners will be announced during Children’s Book Week, May 12–18.
Favorite books can be voted on in these categories: Grade: K-2, 3-4, 5-6, and Favorite AUTHOR and ILLUSTRATOR
There are 5 choices in each category
Make sure to vote on your favorites…and if you haven’t read some of them yet, you still have time!
