Children’s Book Awards
The Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) has recently announced the short list of books that are in the running for this year’s Book of the Year Awards. This list is eagerly awaited by authors, publishers, booksellers and librarians. Many schools and libraries puchase the books on the short list and promote them in the lead up to the announcement of the winners.
The eventual winners are announced at the commencement of Children’s Book Week. This year Book Week is from 19th to 25th of August. Each year the CBCA chooses a different theme. This year the Children’s Book Week theme is Book Now!
My dream for many years is to one day see one of my books listed on the shortlist – and later appear as the winner of the award!Â Dare I dream even bigger and want several of my books listed as winners?
