2022 Picture Book Nominees

We are excited to present read-alouds, book trailers, book talks and activities for the 2022 North Carolina Children's Book Award Picture Book Nominees.  Children nominated their favorite titles published since 2018.  Our committee chose the top twelve and now it's time for the children of North Carolina to get ready to vote for their favorite!  

Voting will begin in March 2022.  Children may vote for their favorite title if they have read at least 5 of the 10 nominees. 

 eBooks and eAudiobooks available through NC Kids digital library.
