Every year a lovely bunch of children's books by New Zealand authors are nominated for the New Zealand Post Children's Book Awards. We all get to vote for the one we think is THE BEST and once the votes are counted, the winners are announced.
Well, last week, the Award Finalists were announced, and now you get the chance to vote for your favourite (and win prizes yourself - read further). Here are the finalists... (drum roll, please!)
FINALISTS - PICTURE BOOKS
FINALISTS - NON FICTIONHERE. By voting online you could win $1000 worth of book tokens! Imagine that! You could buy all of your favourite books and more!
And next term we will be having one of the authors visiting our school. You will all get the chance to meet Terri Rose Baynton who wrote and illustrated a picture book called Mr Bear Branches and the Cloud Conundrum. It's really delightful! More on that next term...
Enjoy your holidays, bookworms. Keep reading, and don't forget to fill out your reading diaries and bring them back next term (more prizes!).
Happy reading! :-)
