Children's Book Awards

The Children’s Book Award is the only national award voted for solely by children from start to finish. It is highly regarded by parents, teachers, librarians, publishers and children’s authors and illustrators as it truly represents the children’s choice. Thanks to the support of the publishers, around 800 new books are donated to be read and reviewed by our Testing Groups across the country every year, with over 100,000 total votes being cast in the process. At the end of each testing year, around 10,000 books are donated to hospitals, women’s refuges, nurseries and disadvantaged schools by our groups.
