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 annual celebration of reading and books for young people since 1919.
Children's & Teen Choice Book Awards
The only national book awards program where kids and teens voice their choice.
National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature
Listening and empowering kids nationwide to encourage growth and discovery through storytelling.
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 poster campaign featuring book creators, athletes, artists, and public figures caught reading their favorite book.
