Thanks for joining in the fun for the 2020 Children’s Book Week celebrations — May 4-10 and November 9-15.
We are grateful to you for the time and energy you put into connecting kids with books every day . . . and especially thank you for the extra work you are putting into Children’s Book Week this year!
Children’s Book Week is not only a celebration of books, but of connection. It is a vehicle to unite kids and adults with books, authors, and illustrators in order to foster a love of reading in all.
With this in mind, we encourage you to celebrate with us online and at home November 9-15 this year.
We encourage all locations to do whatever they are able to celebrate with their communities. Need some inspiration?
Take a look at our ideas for virtual events and ways to connect with your community. And share our at-home celebration ideas through your channels.
The Children’s & Teen Choice Book Awards are the only national book awards voted on only by kids and teens. Launched in 2008 by the Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader, the awards provide young readers with an opportunity to voice their opinions about the books being written for them.
Learn about this year’s finalists and turn your school library into a polling station for young readers:
You can use our ballots (K-2nd Grade, 3rd-4th Grade, 5th-6th Grade, Teen) to collect votes from your kids. Tally and enter these votes in our group ballot. Also, enjoy the multiple activities we’ve prepared by grade in your (virtual) classroom or media center.
