Archives - Kidsreads Newsletter for Parents

It's been a really busy month, and we have lots of news to share. First up, the Children's Book Council announced the winners of the third annual Children's Choice Book Awards during a gala held in New York on May 11th. Recipients of the award were selected by over 115,000 online votes by kids across the country through www.BookWeekOnline.com. I was fortunate enough to attend the event with some of our staffers. There were a number of children's and YA authors in the house, and eager children were running around getting their autographs. It was great to see this much enthusiasm going on about…BOOKS! The photo here is of Jeff Kinney, the author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series autographing a “standee” of Greg, the protagonist of the series, for my son Cory. The complete list of winners can be found here.
