Kids and teens aren’t shy about their favorite things, especially when it comes to the books they love. In the run-up to the 2015 Children’s Choice Book Awards, young readers cast more than 1,300,000 votes for their favorite books, authors and illustrators.
Book of the Year awards, based on grade level, went to “Eva and Sadie and the Worst Haircut EVER!” by Jeff Cohen, “Kali’s Story: An Orphaned Polar Bear Rescue” by Jennifer Keats Curtis, “The Dumbest Idea Ever!” by Jimmy Gownley and “The One” by Kiera Cass.
In addition to the traditional four categories voted on by kids from kindergarten through high school, three new awards were added this year: Children’s Choice Debut Author, Teen Choice Debut Author and Children’s Choice Illustrator. Chris Appelhans was the winning illustrator, Jennifer Mathieu won for Teen Choice Debut Author and J.A. White was the Children’s Choice Debut Author.
