Website: http://www.bookweekonline.com/

Description:
Launched in 2008 by the Children's Book Council and Every Child A Reader, The Children's Choice Book Awards is the only national book awards program where the winning titles are selected by children and teens of all ages. Young readers can vote for their favorite books, author, and illustrator of the year at BookWeekOnline.com until Thursday, May 3, 2012. Educators, booksellers, and librarians can also tally and enter kids' votes as a group. This year, more than 20,000 children and teens nationwide determined the finalists: children spent months reading and rating books in the classroom through the IRA-CBC Children's Choices Program; teens made their voices heard through voting hosted by TeenReads.com. The Author and Illustrator of the Year finalists were selected by the Children's Book Council from an evaluation of best-seller lists with an emphasis on Bookscan. Learn more about the finalist selection process here. The award winners will be announced live at a gala celebration in NYC hosted and presented by kid lit heavyweights on May 7, 2012 as part of Children's Book Week (May 7-13th, 2012), the nation's longest-running literacy initiative.
