Children's Book WeekHere’s something we love: Now through April 29, you and your little ones can cast votes for the finalists in the Children’s Choice Book Awards. What a cool way to get your kid involved in picking new titles to grab from the library.

The categories are sorted by age, plus there’s Illustrator or the Year and Author of the Year. Winners will be announced during Children’s Book Week and you can help.

If you want to discover some new reading material for your early-reading kiddos, check out these finalists in the K through 2nd grade categories.

Even Monsters Need Haircuts by Matthew McElligott

Hot Rod Hamster by Cynthia Lord, illustrated by Derek Anderson

How Rocket Learned to Read by Tad Hills

Little Pink Pup by Johanna Kerby

Cast your vote now and see what
happens when you give a babe a book. (Hint: That
babe will hopefully grow up surrounded with more books, some of which
might feature moose, muffins, pigs, pancakes, and sparkly vampires.) ~Delilah

Cast your vote in the Children’s Choice book Awards sponsored by the Children’s Book Council and Every Child a Reader. The deadline is April 29, and winners are announed May 2.
