The Children’s Choice Book Awards were a huge success! Young readers from across the country went to bookweekonline.com to vote in record numbers. More than 1,000,000 votes were cast and the winners were announced at a NYC gala on May 13th. In case you missed the big event, here are a few pictures courtesy of Publisher’s Weekely.

I wish I could have been there, but it was my son’s birthday, and I just couldn’t miss that! We did celebrate Children’s Book Week the next night when we attended the Read Alliance gala. We met some of the READ tutors who impressed us with their poise and confidence. And, speaking of success, the auction raised more than $40,000 in about 15 minutes. Everyone in the room was obviously inspired by the incredible work that is done by the Read Alliance organization.
