2014 Moonbeam Children's Book AwardsJenkins Group proudly announced the winners of the 2014 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards:

“Launched in 2007, the awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children’s books and their creators, and to celebrate children’s books and life-long reading.

Congratulations to all the winners!”

The 2014 Moonbeam Awards medal ceremony was held in conjunction with the 5th annual Traverse City Children’s Book Festival, on Saturday, November 8, 2014.

Many of Moonbeam’s award-winning books encourage children to be generous and compassionate, to stand up to bullies, and to believe in fulfilling their dreams. The diversity of the winning publishers proves that promoting childhood literacy knows no boundaries, as medal winners came not only from long-established publishers and university presses, but from small presses, foundations, and self-published entrepreneurs.

Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards celebrates authors who create books that inspire children to read, to learn, and to dream. Each year’s entries are judged by expert panels of youth educators, librarians, booksellers, and book reviewers of all ages. Award recipients receive gold, silver, and bronze medals and stickers depicting a mother and child reading and silhouetted by a full moon.
