A child-led reading development project delivered into Shropshire primary schools to find the book published in the previous two years that children love the most.
The first Book Award project in 2010 was an immediate and overwhelming success, so we ran the project again in 2012, 2014 and 2016. We have developed its scope and widened its reach each time. For Book Award 2018, the project will be extended to KS1 as well as for KS2.
Over 33 schools across Shropshire are now signed up to this project. The shortlisted 6 books will be revealed at the Building a Buzz About Books Conference on 6 December 2017. Schools will begin reading, reviewing and voting for their favourite at the start of term in January 2018.
