The BC Chocolate Lily Young Readers’ Choice Award encourages grade school students to read some of the best fiction by British Columbia’s children’s authors and illustrators. There are two categories: Best Picture Book, as voted by students in kindergarten through grade 3, and Best Chapter Book/Novel, chosen by readers in grades 4 through 8. The winners of the Chocolate Lily are presented at a gala in May.
