2018 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards: Winners

The Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards are presented by the Independent Publisher and Jenkins Group to honour North America's best children’s books, authors and illustrators. These selections celebrate "youthful curiosity, discovery and learning through books and reading." In 42 categories (with an additional 5 Spirit Awards), these children's books represent the publishing efforts of main-stream publishers as well as small presses, and even those of self-publishers.
