BumpyBooks wins a 2008 Moonbeam Award

Announcing the 2008 Moonbeam Children's Book Awards Results

Here are the best children's books of the year as determined by the Moonbeam Awards judges.

Here are the 2008 Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards results, arranged by category. Congratulations to our gold, silver and bronze medalists in all 31 Moonbeam Awards categories, plus the Moonbeam Spirit and Peacemaker of the Year gold medal winners.

The 138 medalists listed below were chosen from a total of 1,085 entries (an average of 36 per category). Many of these books are by little-known authors, illustrators and publishers from around the world, and we're proud to bring them to the attention of the children's book audience. Creating books that inspire our children to read, to learn, and to dream is an extremely important task, and these awards were conceived to reward those efforts. Thanks to everyone involved for sharing their wonderful works of art. Congratulations to all!
