Posted: December 20, 2016

“The Star Tree” has been shortlisted for the Cambridgeshire Children’s Picture Book Awards!  It is particularly heart warming to know that this is an award voted for by children.

Read it Again! – the children’s picture book award

Read it Again! is the name of the Cambridgeshire Libraries children’s picture book award.

How it works

  • It is a unique award for a first-time picture book where the words and pictures are the work of one individual.
  • Thousands of Cambridgeshire children in local schools read, discuss and then vote for their favourite book from a shortlist of eight titles, all by first-time author/illustrators.
  • The award encourages children to discuss books with their classmates and think about what makes a good book.
  • Library staff visit schools promoting the award to children.
