Georgia Book Awards

The Georgia Children’s Book Award was established in 1968 by Sheldon Root, professor in the Department of Language Education in the College of Education at the University of Georgia. The purpose of the award is to foster a love of reading in the children of Georgia and to introduce them to books of literary excellence.

The annual award is given in two categories: picture books and middle grade books. The selection process involves teachers, school library media specialists, public librarians, and tens of thousands of youth from across the state. Following this site is a fun and easy way to try new books!

Check it out and discover new books for all age groups.
