Kids & Teens - Vote for Your Favorite Books!

Hey Kids and Teens - let your voice be heard by voting for your favorite books and authors from 2010 in the Children's Choice Book Awards. Children's Book Week is coming up in May, and as part of the celebration, they give out awards to popular authors. The Denver Public Library owns all of the titles that have been nominated, so get reading now while you still have time to vote!

Children's Book Week is May 2-8 and celebrates books for young people of all ages. While the Children's Book Week website has all kinds of good stuff on it, like a bookmark by Jeff Kinney (!), my favorite part is voting for the best books. The Children's Choice Book Awards honor books for Kindergarten - High School. If you haven't read some of these yet, you can pick up copies of all of the nominees from the various branches of the Denver Public Library. If your branch doesn't have one you want to read, just place a hold. You can vote and view all of the nominees here and I will list them all below. I know what I would vote for - how about you?
