The Kids Have Spoken!
The Children’s Choice Book Awards is the only national book awards program where the winning titles are chosen by kids and teens.
“The idea was born out of the understanding that when kids are given a voice and agency in their reading choices, they tend to be a lot more excited about reading.”
“Each year, about 13,000 children across the United States read newly published children and young adult books within their classes through the International Reading Association, in partnership with the Children’s Book Council….Kids voted for their favorites online with the help of their parents and teachers, or educators submitted group ballots after polling their students. “
