Group status: We're actively surveying
We are book loving kids. We love a good book and we have plenty of ideas for next year's selection. Our ages and reading ability varies so that we get plenty of different points of view.
We meet every week, read books and exchange book ideas.
Some of our favourite books are, St Clare's & Malory Towers, The Three Little Pigs, Harry Potter Series, The Inheritance Series, Dork Diary Series, Beast Quest,The Witches Kiss and the Witches Tears, Katy, Grimms Fairy Tales (Phillip Pullman), The Hetty Feather's Series, Artemis Fowl Series and the Scarlet and Ivy Series.
As you can see our choices vary widely.
After reading and discussing the short listed books we decided on our top three for each category. The Carnegie Award; Beck, Salt to the Sea and The Bone Sparrow. For the Kate Greenaway Award we chose; There is a Tribe of Kids, Tidy and The Journey.
When the awards were announced our choices were quite similar to the judges. The Carnegie Award winner was Salt to the Sea. The Kate Greenaway winner was There is a Tribe of Kids. An additional award was given, The Amnesty CILIP Honour and the winners were The Bone Sparrow and The Journey.
There were some great books. We hope to continue the club next year.
