Best Of Submissions

The BEST OF co-sponsored lists submission process is now closed. Publishers, submit next year’s titles in June 2021.

The BEST OF lists are educator and student-targeted, and aim to be a helpful resource in and outside of the classroom. The Children’s Book Council accepts submissions for our annual co-sponsored lists every June.  Each list has different requirements and shipping deadlines, so please read carefully the Call for Submissions for each list to prepare for next year’s title submissions.

2021 submissions are closed. 2022 submissions will open in June 2021.

See below if you want to prepare for submissions next year. You can review the previous 2021 Submission Calls for eligibility and submission guidelines.
