    Moonbeam Children's Books Awards / Jerrold Jenkins Group, Inc.

    Hi All,

    I'm a newbie but a long time reader of this forum. Great job. I love it.

    I received a message about the "1st Annual Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards" at It's from the Jenkins Group, which I know has been discussed in this forum.

    I'm interested in your take on this Award. Like, for instance, what a book "wins" besides just the honor of winning. All they state is, "The Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards are intended to bring increased recognition to exemplary children’s books and their creators, and to support childhood literacy and life-long reading."

    $75 a book is pretty steep for authors and small publishers to pay for a chance to win an award that may take a few years to build recognition and legitimacy within the industry, if it's around that long that is.

    Imma gonna make this the catch-all thread for the Jenkins Group. In addition to the Moonbeams, he also runs the IPPY Awards (more discussion here), the eLit Book Awards, the Living Now Book Awards, and the Axiom Business Book Awards.

    Writer Beware has commented on these both individually and collectively over the years, but here's the bottom line:

    Censorship always defeats its own purpose, for it creates in the end the kind of society that is incapable of exercising real discretion. -- Henry Steele Commager
    Achievers strive for excellence. Perfectionists drive themselves to extinction. -- A Grapple A Day
    I've never known any trouble that an hour's reading didn't assuage. -- Charles DeSecondat
