Last night, the Children’s Book Council (CBC) announced the winners of the 2010 Children’s Choice Book Awards.  Children voted at school libraries and bookstores across the country: more than 115,000 votes were cast!  Categories included books, authors and illustrators.

According to an announcement on CBC’s website:

The Children’s Choice Book Awards program, launched in 2008 by The Children’s Book Council (CBC) in association with Every Child a Reader, Inc. (the CBC Foundation), was created to provide young readers with an opportunity to voice their opinions about the books being written for them and to help develop a reading list that will motivate children to read more and cultivate a love of reading.

And the winners are (as listed on CBC’s website):

Author of the Year

James Patterson for Max (A Maximum Ride Novel) (Little, Brown)

Illustrator of the Year

Peter Brown for The Curious Garden (Little, Brown)

Kindergarten to Second Grade Book of the Year

Lulu the Big Little Chick written and illustrated by Paulette Bogan (Bloomsbury USA)

Third Grade to Fourth Grade Book of the Year

Lunch Lady and the Cyborg Substitute written and illustrated by Jarrett J. Krosoczka (Knopf/Random House)

Fifth Grade to Sixth Grade Book of the Year

Dork Diaries: Tales from a Not-so-fabulous Life written and illustrated by Rachel Renee Russell (Aladdin/Simon & Schuster)

Want a cool way to promote these books?  Or want to let your kids hear their favorite authors read aloud?  Well, CBC has three of the authors/illustrators reading their award-winning books at their website, A Story Before Bed.  What a can’t-miss opportunity to connect authors and illustrators with the books kids love!

For information about the teen winner, please see my YA review blog, YA Need Books.
