The North Carolina Children's Book Award program is a children's choice program designed to introduce children to current children's literature and to instill a love of reading. The award is sponsored by the North Carolina Library Association's Youth Services Section and supported by school and public librarians across the state.
We are very pleased to announce the nominees for the 2023 North Carolina Children's Book Awards. We selected twelve titles for both lists because of possible availability issues. In order to vote, children should read at least 5 picture book nominees and/or 3 junior book nominees.
