The Children's Book Award was founded in 1980 by author & librarian Pat Thompson and is run by a team of dedicated volunteers from the Federation of Children's Book Groups (FCBG), a registered charity who aims to encourage children to read for pleasure.
The FCBG was set up as a charity by Anne Wood, the originator of the Tellytubbies. They act as an umbrella organisation for local Children's Book Groups all over the UK. The groups organise a variety of activities including author events and other activities that promote the enjoyment of children's books. The Federation also produces numerous specialist book lists, organises National Share-a-Story Month each May and holds an annual conference each spring.
Red House became the Award's sponsor in 2001.
