CBCA Short list for 2016

This is always an exciting time for school libraries and student across Australia when the Children's Book Council announce the short list.

The volunteer judges from around Australia read over 350 books each year, they select the best ones for a Notable list and then six titles in each of five categories as a short list.  In August, at the start of Book Week, the five winners will be announced.

I have blogged a few of the lucky books from the selection this year.

Younger Readers
Sister Heart
Molly and Pim
Run Pip Run

Early Childhood Picture Book of the Year
Mr Huff

Over the coming weeks I will look more closely at many of the other books.  I was a little disappointed that some of my favourite books were not selected especially Teacup and In the evening.
