EVERY CHILD A READER believes introducing children to the magic of reading is hero’s work. We support a diverse network of heroes — including educators, caregivers, librarians, and booksellers — by connecting book creators with communities, providing literacy tools and resources, and championing young people’s voices.
We do this through a variety of fun, free, and engaging programs:
Children's Book Week
The twice a year national celebration – in spring and fall – of books for young people and the joy of reading, celebrating 102 years of reading fun in 2021.
Children's & Teen Choice Book Awards
The only national book awards program where the winning books are selected solely by children and teens!
National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature
On a mission to spread the message that reading is a fun and important part of young people’s growth and happiness.
Anna Dewdney Read Together Award
Annual picture book award for superb read-alouds that also spark compassion, empathy, and connection.
Get Caught Reading
A year-round national classroom and library poster campaign featuring authors, athletes, artists and public figures ‘caught reading’ a favorite book.
