In just a few weeks, from May 11th through the 17th, Children's Book Week kicks off! Sponsored by the Children's Book Council, (a non-profit trade association for children's publishers), the events span the country, concluding in our very own Copley Square. Particulars of the events should be announced shortly, but the most exciting night will be Tuesday's Children's Choice Book Awards.
Kids and teens can vote for their favorite book, author and illustrator right here, until May 3rd. Who do you think will win? Any contest that pits Stephenie Meyer, Jeff Kinney, and Rick Riordan against each other should be fun to watch! (I'll admit, I was surprised when Stephenie Meyer's Twilight championed over Harry Potter at Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards, though not surprised when there was hubbub over it).
