Award-winning Children's Books and the Major Children's Book Awards
Awards are important in children's books. They tell publishers, writers, and illustrators what is considered to be "the best," and thus the standards they must strive to attain. Many children's book awards, though not all, are selected by librarians. Award-winners then get orders from libraries around the country. Awards are also important to publishers because books that win these awards will be ordered by bookstores as soon as they are announced, and then prominently displayed with award stickers on their front covers.

Reader's Theater Editions (Readers Theatre, Free Scripts, Short Children's Plays)
Reader’s Theater Editions are free scripts for reader’s theater (or readers theatre) adapted from stories written by Aaron Shepard and others—mostly humor, fantasy, and world tales from a variety of cultures. A full range of reading levels is included, with scripts aimed mostly at ages 8–15. The scripts may be freely copied, shared, and performed for any noncommercial purpose, except they may not be posted online without permission. As noted in the listing, some scripts come also in a “Team Version,” scripted for four readers with at least two females. These scripts are offered primarily for smaller groups such as after-school programs and homeschoolers, as well as for college and professional readers. Special features are available for many scripts.
