4th Annual Children’s Choice Book Awards Program


The Children’s Book Council is pleased to announce the 4th annual Children’s Choice Book Awards Program. The only national children’s book awards where winning titles are selected by the young readers for whom they are written.

Beginning in mid-March, children and teens across the country have the opportunity to vote on their favorite books, authors, and illustrators of the year at bookstores, school libraries, and at http://www.bookweekonline.com/.

Last year, over 115,000 young people evaluated and elected the winning titles, which are announced live during the annual Children’s Choice Book Awards Gala, held during Children’s Book Week (May 2-8, 2011).

Launched by The Children’s Book Council in association with Every Child a Reader, Inc. (the CBC Foundation) in 2008, the Children’s Choice Book Awards Program was created to provide young readers with an opportunity to voice their opinions about the books being written for them and to help develop a reading list that will motivate children to read more and cultivate a life-long love of reading.

About CBW – A great nation is a reading nation.”

Since 1919, Children’s Book Week has been celebrated nationally in schools, libraries, bookstores, clubs, private homes — any place where there are children and books. Educators, librarians, booksellers, and families have celebrated children’s books and the love of reading with storytelling, parties, author and illustrator appearances, and other book-related events.

It all began with the idea that children’s books can change lives. In 1913, Franklin K. Matthiews, the librarian of the Boy Scouts of America, began touring the country to promote higher standards in children’s books. He proposed creating a Children’s Book Week, which would be supported by all interested groups: publishers, booksellers, and librarians. For the full story click http://www.bookweekonline.com/about
