The California Reading Association, known for the California Young Reader Medal, has a relatively new award for nonfiction children’s books, the Eurekea! Nonfiction Children’s Book Award. Fellow SCBWI San Diego member Helen Foster James, is the force behind this award.
The Eureka! Nonfiction Children’s Book Award assists teachers, librarians, and parents in identifying outstanding nonfiction books for their students and children.
Eligible books must be nonfiction, but can be in any genre including poetry, folktale/fairy tale, informational, biography, memoir, cookbooks, joke books, self-help, reference, etc.
