Children’s Choice Book Awards 2012

April 20th, 2012 by

Based on all your comments about this year’s Kids Choice Awards, it sounds like you guys are not so pleased with the results. Well, now’s your chance to cast your vote in another kidlit competition: the Children’s Choice Book Awards!

You have until May 3rd to vote, and then the winners will be announced at a big gala celebration in NYC. Last year, Nancy and I attended the gala (and positively swooned like crazed fans as we mingled with super celeb authors like Rick Riordan, Jeff Kinney, and R.L. Stine).

Around that time, there will also be a bunch of events around the country to celebrate Children’s Book Week. From Los Angeles to Washington, DC — and in cities in between — there are parties planned all over the nation!

Of course, even if you can’t make it to any of these events, we’ll report back to you on all the Children’s Choice Book Awards winners. But obviously, in order for there to be winner, YOU need to vote first!

The finalists are…

For Grades 3-4:

bad-kitty-meets-the-baby funeral-in-the-bathroom monstrous-book-of-monsters sidekicks squish

For Grades 5-6:

bad_island how_to_survive_anything lost_and_found okay_for_now racing_in_the_rain

And you can also vote for Author of the Year and Illustrator of the Year. Finalists include Brian Selznick, Christopher Paolini, and Rachel Renée Russell!

So, who will you vote for? Leave a comment and let me know! And maybe this time, your pick will actually be crowned!

Karen has read only a few of these books, so her self-esteem is pretty low right now. 🙁 Better get to the library!
