The finalists for the 5th Annual Children’s Choice Book Awards, the only national book awards program where the winning titles are selected by children and teens of all ages, are in! And YOU, the reader, determine the best kids’ books! There are books ranging from picture books, graphic novels, early chapter books to chapter books for ages 4 through 10 or grades Kindergarten through 4th grade. Please vote and have your kids vote too!
Voting opens online March 14 at bookweekonline.com and runs through May 3.
Winners will be announced live during the Children’s Choice Book Awards Gala on May 7 in NYC. For the first time this year, footage of the entire ceremony, featuring award presentations by kid lit heavyweights Jarrett Krosoczka, Marc Brown, Mary Pope Osborne, S.E.
