Children's Choice Book Awards - Vote Now!

The Children's Choice Book Award is the only national award program where children and teens of all ages select the winning titles - and it's happening right now!

Kids in K-2nd, 3rd-4th, 5th-6th grades, and up through teens can cast votes through April 29, for their favorite books, authors, and illustrators from a list of finalists. Their votes really do count!

The winners will be announced on May 2, at the start of Children's Book Week, a national celebration of books and reading for youth, began in 1919 with the idea that books can change lives. This year the festivities run from May 2 - May 8.

The list of this year's finalists, as well as past winners, is also a place to get ideas for books your kids may not yet have read. And remember, these are kid-approved. Chances are your kids will enjoy them, too.
