As I mentioned in a previous post, the ABC's Children's Book Competition gives us -- the people who read children's books -- a chance to pick the next great book.

Voting opened on Sunday, September 16 and you can vote until September 30. Don't forget to get the kids involved ... they can vote, too.

Click here to read the manuscripts of the twelve finalists!
This is the third year for this competition. The prize is a publishing contract, a print run of 10,000 hardcover copies, plus 1,000 extra copies for the author to do with as he/she pleases.

So 10 months from now when you're at your morning playgroup and a Mom says "did you hear about this book?" you can say ... "Yeah, I knew it would be a hit. I voted for it!"
