Children's Book Week and Children's Choice Books

Exactly one month from today, Children's Book Week will begin!

Established in 1919, Children's Book Week celebrates books for young people and the joy of reading from coast to coast!

  •  Check out the line-up of Official Book Week events! Over 40 cities are hosting author and illustrator events during Book Week (May 7-13, 2012), with additional venues to come!
  • Each year, the Children's Book Council enlists illustrators to design a commemorative Children's Book Week Poster and Bookmark. Download the 2012 Book Week bookmark by Lane Smith and order your 2012 Poster by David Wiesner!
  • Children's Choice Book Awards Gala! In 2008, the Children's Book Council created the Children's Choice Book Awards, the only national child-chosen book awards program, giving young readers a powerful voice in their own reading choices. Each year, the award winners are announced live at the highly-anticipated Children's Choice Book Awards Gala during Book Week (May 7, 2012)!
It's not too late to still have a voice in which books are awarded as Children's Choice Books. See which books make the list of finalists in K-2, 3-4, 5-6 and teens categories, then vote for your favorites. You can vote as an individual or you can post a group vote for your class.

You can also add a really cool widget to your blog or website with the CCBs finalists.
