Submission & Guildelines

Submission Guidelines

Publishers submit books by sending one copy of each book to:

The Children’s Book Committee
Bank Street College of Education
610 West 112th Street
New York, NY 10025

Books must be received by November 1 of the calendar year in which they are published to be considered. Publisher contact information must be included with each shipment or emailed to bookcom@bankstreet.edu. Updated publisher information is critical to our work.

Children’s Book Committee Review Guidelines

The Children’s Book Committee compiles a list of the best books published in English each year in the United States and Canada. To that end, members collectively read and review all books submitted by publishers for the year under consideration. They then finalize the list and edit and proofread the titles and annotations while following a defined set of criteria. The Committee also presents three book awards each year.
