Booksprocket is the proud sponsor of the Gelett Burgess Children's Book Awards

The prestigious Gelett Burgess Children's Book Award highlights excellence in family-friendly books covering the broad expanse of a child's existence, helping them grow: socially, emotionally, ethically, intellectually, and physically. This list is promoted throughout the year to parents, educators, librarians, and youth service workers in the United States.

Each year the Gelett Burgess Center produces a comprehensive list of what we consider the most unique children’s books on the market. With over 40 categories, books are selected in 4 distinct groups: Lifestyle, Arts and Letters, Society and Culture, and Education. This list is promoted throughout the year with additional activity and lesson plan resources made available.

Parents, Educators, Librarians and Retailers trust the high mark of distinction the Gelett Burgess honors provide a product. Informed decisions about purchasing products designed for children and families can be made knowing they have passed the foundation’s stringent evaluation process.

The Gelett Burgess Center recognizes Gelett Burgess' disctinct style in both writing and illustration, and holds this standard to the books and scholarship applicants we award. Visit the Gelett Burgess Children's Book Award website to learn more about our exciting program todayl.
