The Maud Hart Lovelace Book Award is a children's choice book award.

    Its purpose is to encourage recreational reading among upper elementary age children.
    Nominated titles are works of fiction of recognized quality selected by a panel of reading groups.

    Here is how the award works:

    Each year ten chapter book nominees will be announced.

    Students who read three or more of the nominated books will be able to vote.

    Voting will take place at the end March.

    The award winner will be announced sometime in April.  New nominees will be announced at the same time.
