Children’s Choice Book Awards 2011

April 17th, 2011 by

Last year, Karen let you know about the super cool Children’s Choice Book Awards, which lets YOU vote on your favorite books, authors, and illustrators. Last year’s winners for favorite books turned out to be Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute (Grades 3-4 Category) and Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-so-fabulous Life (Grades 5-6 Category).

So what will it be this year? Check out the finalists!

For Grades 3-4:

For Grades 5-6

While the finalists for the Grades 5-6 category are pretty different from last year (and so hard to choose from!), there are a few returning series for Grades 3-4. Will Lunch Lady prevail again? Make sure your vote counts!

Finalists for Favorite Author include returning finalist Jeff Kinney (Diary of a Wimpy Kid series) and Rick Riordan… That’s a battle of wits and writing I don’t want get in the middle of!

What will you be voting for? Tell us why in the comments!

Nancy just noticed that if you look at the Grades 5-6 category above, the book covers say: “It’s a Book. Smile.” … and she totally did!

April 8th, 2010 by

Recently, I encouraged you to vote in the Favorite Book category for Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards. And it’s awesome that they included a book category, but let’s face it: when I watched the show, it was obvious that the focus was on slime, celebrities, and more slime — not on reading.

Well, now you can cast your vote in a battle that’s all about books and nothing but books: the Children’s Choice Book Awards! (Did I mention it celebrates books?)

You have until May 3rd to vote, but this ain’t no school assignment — don’t put it off until the last minute, just go vote now!

The finalists are…

For Grades 3-4:

The Book That Eats People Coretta Scott Gonzalo Grabs the Good Life Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute Oceanology

For Grades 5-6:
