Hey Kids, Vote For Your Favorites!
What is Children’s Book Week? It’s a nation-wide celebration of books and reading for youth. Since 1919 authors and illustrators have made appearances at schools, libraries, book stores and any place where books and reading are celebrated to celebrate Children’s Book Week.
In 2008 the Children’s Choice Book Awards was created to give children a voice in what they like to read. Voting is over four categories, K-2nd grade, 3rd -4th grades, 5th - 6th grades and Teens. Within each category kids select their favorite book, author (excluding K-2nd) and illustrator.
