The Children’s Book Review has turned three. Yep, that’s right. Three!

A year’s worth of thanks go to Luisa LaFleur, Phoebe Vreeland, Tina Vasquez, and Erik Schulze, for their extremely helpful contributions during 2010. A big thank you also goes to all of the amazingly talented authors and illustrators who gave us their time for some very fun interviews.

And … it certainly wouldn’t be a party without presents! The best part about TCBR’s birthday celebration is that you can have the presents. Well … at least one of you can. To say thank you and to giveback to our supporting readers, The Children’s Book Review is giving $300 worth of children’s books to one lucky reader—the winner even gets to pick the age range(s)/reading level(s) of the books.

But wait, there’s more! The super cool people over at Scholastic have given us five awesome books to add to the package: 1) The Dreamer by Pam Muñoz Ryan, winner of the Pura Belpre Award (2011). 2) Newbery Honor Book Rules by Cynthia Lord. 3)  The Babysitters Club: The Summer Before by award-winning author Ann M. Martin. 4) Bestselling Too Many Toys by David Shannon. 5) Clifford the Champion by Norman Bridwell, who has over 44 million copies of his books in print. Did I mention that all of these books have been signed? The value: Priceless!

  • Bianca-

    Thank you so much. I will donate some of the books to my son’s Kindergarden class they are sadly lacking in good literature.


    April 19, 2011
    • That’s wonderful. I’m thrilled they are going to a good place where they will be read many times!

  • My students who’ve had to suffer along with me due to budget cuts in our library budget would be thrilled beyond words to find new books waiting for them before school is out. Many have been looking at websites and local bookstores and asking for new titles that seem interesting. I’d love be able to have those for them as a special surprise for working so hard on their reading this year.
