The CBC is excited to announce the winners of the 2009 Children's Choice Book Awards.

Award winners were determined this year by over 220,000 online votes by kids across the country. Voting was open from March 16 through May 3 on the Children’s Book Week website at www.BookWeekOnline.com.

The Children’s Choice Book Awards were announced live at the awards gala held May 12 in New York City as part of Children’s Book Week (May 11-17, 2009), the oldest national literacy event in the United States. This year marks the 90th observance of Book Week.

The awards ceremony, hosted by National Ambassador for Young People’s Literature Jon Scieszka, included the presentation of the Impact Award to Whoopi Goldberg in recognition of her vast contribution to the promotion of literacy and the love of reading among young people. Last year’s Impact Award recipient, Al Roker, presented the award.
