In 2009, the 3rd Annual Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards contest attracted nearly a thousand entries from throughout North America and the English-speaking world. Medals went to authors, illustrators and publishers from 32 U.S. states, 5 Canadian provinces, and 7 countries overseas. Judges chose gold, silver and bronze medalists in 36 categories, covering the full range of children’s book genres from picture books to poetry; holiday to health issues.

Established in 2007, Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children’s books and their creators, and to support childhood literacy and life-long reading.

As our society has gotten more complex and growing up has become more complicated, children’s book authors and publishers have risen to the occasion, creating books that not only celebrate the joys of The Awards recognize and reward the best of these books and bring them to the attention of parents, booksellers, librarians – and to children themselves.
