Call for Nominations

August 7, 2017


The 2018 CLEL Bell Awards Committee wants to hear about the great picture books, board books and early reader nonfiction you’ve been reading this year! Please take a look at the selection criteria here before you submit a title. To suggest a title, you can go to the CLEL website here and fill out the form.  


The CLEL Bell Picture Book Awards recognize five picture books

related to one of the five early literacy practices: read, write, sing, talk or

play. These books provide excellent support of early literacy development in

young children, serve as a collection development, program planning, and early

literacy information resource for librarians, educators, and caregivers.
