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. 🙂
Sorry it’s halfway through the week already before I had the chance to remind you about CHILDREN’S BOOK WEEK. Click on the link and you’ll find a great bookmark you can print.
Since 1919, Children’s Book Week has been celebrated in the United States. Schools, libraries, publishers, bookstores and of course, children enjoy this special week, highlighting books and reading.
What great children’s books have I been reading this week?
The title says it all for this poetry how-to book. Discover your inner poet when you take this book out for a spin.
These poems are totally out-of-sight! The author shares some star-worthy poems and gives insight into poetry lingo.
When is a poem also a picture? If you don’t know, you’ll want to dive into this whirl of words.
The author explains dog walk, talk, and body language. You’ll decipher your dog’s messages in a flash. Fun and informative.
Don’t miss this sweet picture book highlighting a mother cat’s heroic efforts to save her young kittens from a fire. This book is based on a true story. Both the artwork and writing are wonderful.
OK. Now it’s YOUR turn. What incredible children’s books have you been reading???
