Here we are reading the shortlisted Kate Greenaway books for 2019!

We have just started shadowing Kate Greenaway and really enjoy looking at all the books on the shortlist. We take the books home, write a review on the website and draw a picture for the Greenaway gallery. Each month we come to discuss the books with each other and say which ones we enjoyed a lot. Often we have authors and illustrators come into the library to talk to us about their books!
