Lovereading4kids is pleased to support and co-sponsor the UKLA Book Awards this year. Run by the UK Literacy Association, what makes these awards so unique is that they are the only awards judged entirely by active classroom teachers, who are able to share the books with their classes and genuinely discover what works with young readers.
“A great opportunity to read an exciting range of new literature and then to share ideas with other teachers” Kaye Wilson, teacher judge.
This year, teachers have been selected from schools in the Bristol and South West area to read the longlisted books, share them with pupils and discuss them with their group leaders. Then they had the difficult task of choosing their shortlist of six books in each category!
All the longlisted and shortlisted books are shown in this special category and we have exclusive extracts available right here for many of the titles.
