The EB White Read Aloud Award

The E.B. White Read Aloud Award was established in 2004 by The Association of Booksellers for Children (ABC) to honor books that its membership felt embodied the universal read aloud standards that were created by the work of the beloved author E.B. White.

In 2006 the award was expanded into two categories: The E. B. White Read Aloud Award for Picture Books, and The E. B. White Read Aloud Award for Older Readers. Titles are nominated for the award by ABC booksellers, and then the final decision is made by a committee of booksellers that meets annually in February. The awards are publicly announced on the first Monday in April, and the official presentation takes place during a children's dinner at BookExpo America.

Because the award nominees are generated by independent booksellers based on books they have loved in their own stores, there is no formal outside submission process.
