North Carolina Children's Book Award (NCCBA)
The North Carolina Children’s Book Award Committee is proud to announce that Quit Calling Me a Monster, by Jory John and Bob Shea, was the picture book winner, and Wish, by Barbara O'Connor was the junior winner for 2018! Much thanks goes to everyone who participated this year!
This program is sponsored by NCSLMA and the Children’s Services and School Librarian sections of the North Carolina Library Association. Voting directions are posted each fall.
The picture book category honors a picture book, suitable for lower elementary aged students (K-3). This award is intended to broaden students' awareness of current literature for youth, to promote reading aloud with students in the early grades as a means of introducing reading as a pleasure, and to recognize and honor children's favorite books and authors.
