The Children’s Choice Awards are presented as part of National Children’s Book Week, after being vetted by five separate review teams of children across the country. Children’s Choice is the only children-selected literary awards program in the country. If you are interested learning more of the recipients, complete lists of the award-winning novels from 1998 to the present are available at the International Reading Association website.
Will you be doing anything to celebrate Children’s Book Week? Think about joining me in reading a Children’s Choice novel. There are some great books on the list, including Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (also 1999), The City of Ember by Jeanne Duprau and Coraline by Neil Gaiman. But before you decide on one of these novels, check out the lists for yourself!
My review of Clockwork will be posted later on this week or early next week, and in the meantime, I also plan on posting a review of another great children’s novel, The Tale of Despereaux by Kate di Camillo. So check back soon to learn more about these two great fantasy tales, and find a way to celebrate and enjoy Children’s Book Week!
