Children’s Book Awards: A Golden Anniversary Celebration

posted on 13 Feb 2018


Each year, the FCBG holds the Children’s Book Awards, inaugurated in 1980, and the only national award voted for solely by children from start to finish.

Each year over 150,000 votes are cast, over 1,000 books are read and 12,000 books are donated to local charities. Many of the children who participate in the award do not have regular access to new books and the award is appreciated by their schools, families and the children themselves.
