Cambridgeshire Libraries are delighted to announce the launch of the children's picture book award 'Read it Again!' 2018.
The "Read it Again!" award, now in its thirteenth year, is for an outstanding debut children's picture book where both words and pictures are the work of one individual. Last year 90 Cambridgeshire schools took part in the award, with over
15,000 children voting for their favorite book.
The 2018 shortlist of six titles was selected by librarians from Cambridgeshire Libraries Development Team from a long-list of over 20 amazing books.
This year voting will take place across schools from January to the end of March. For the first time, in 2018 we will also be including children's votes received in our libraries throughout April.
Once all the votes are in we will hold a special presentation ceremony in May where children can meet the shortlisted author / illustrators, hear them talk about their books and unveil who has received the most votes and will be crowned Read It Again! 2018 winner!
