The Children's Choice Book Awards is now open!

The nominees for the 2009 Children's Choice Book Awards were recently announced.

Voting for the finalists is now open. Children and teens are able to cast their vote for their favorite books, author, and illustrator at bookstores, school libraries, and online until Sunday, May 3, 2009. Close to 15,000 children and teens from around the US spent months reading and evaluating books submitted by publishers.

The five favorite books published in 2008 in each of these categories are open for a nation-wide vote in each of four grade categories: K-2nd, 3rd-4th, 5th-6th, and Teen as well as Favorite Author, and Favorite Illustrator.

The winner in each category will be named at a gala during Children's Book Week on May 12th, 2009 in New York City as part of Children's Book Week (May 11-17, 2009), the oldest national literacy event in the United States.

Please spread the word to children so they can vote. Remember, voting ends May 3, 2009!
