What is MCBA?The Massachusetts Children's Book Award Program was founded at Salem State University in Salem Massachusetts by Dr. Helen Constant 1975 to encourage children to read great books.
Students are given a “master list” of book titles. Children are eligible to vote if they have read, or have heard read aloud, at least five of the books from the 2021 Master List. Voting will take place at the end of February, 2021.
Titles on the master list are all available in paperback and online from JV Fletcher Library. The author of the winning book receives a plaque to commemorate the award.
