  1. 1. Children's and Teen Choice Book Awards winners announced 2014 Children's Choice Book Awards 2014 Children's Choice Book Awards 2014 Children's Choice Book Awards 2014 Children's Choice Book Awards 2014 Children's Choice Book Awards 2014 Children's Choice Book Awards STORY HIGHLIGHTS Winners of the Children's and Teen Choice Book Awards were announced Wednesday night The winners are chosen by the target readers -- children and teens Kate DiCamillo, national ambassador for Young People's Literature, hosted the ceremony (CNN) -- The kids have spoken. Winners of the Children's and Teen Choice Book Awards were announced Wednesday night at the seventh Children's Book Week Gala in New York, part of the the 95th Children's Book Week. Rush Limbaugh won author of the year for "Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans," while Grace Lee won illustrator of the year for "Sofia the First: The Floating Palace." These are the only awards chosen by children and teens in support of their favorite books, according to the Children's Book Council. Each year, about 13,000 children across the United States read newly published children and young adult books within their classes through the International Reading Association, in partnership with the Children's Book Council. Kids voted for their favorites online with the help of their parents and teachers, or educators submitted group ballots after polling their students. The teen finalists were chosen through a joint program with Teenreads.com, part of The Book Report Network. The top author and illustrator finalists were determined by the bestseller lists. Voters were also allowed to write in finalists that weren't listed. The Children's Book Council's vetting process ensures that voting is done by children and teens, or submitted from classroom ballot boxes, they said. "The idea was born out of the understanding that when kids are given a voice and agency in their reading choices, they tend to be a lot more excited about reading," said Nicole Deming of the Children's Book Council. "It's so important to get those gateway titles to them that will lead them to
