The Colorado Children's Book Award.
Livo, Norma J.
This paper discusses the Colorado Children's Book Award (CCBA), established in 1975 to allow children, rather than adults, to vote on their favorite books. The rules for book nomination and voting are explained in this paper and a short history of the award is given. The remaining portion of the paper reviews briefly each of the 12 children's books from the 1981 CCBA nomination list, the subjects of which include problems young people encounter while growing up, animal adventures, childhood fears, and fantasy.
