Welcome back everyone. We are really excited about term three and can’t wait to share all of the wonderful activities we have planned with you. This term we will be focusing on some of the Early Childhood and Picture books that have been shortlisted for Book of the Year 2012. The shortlist was announced on April 3rd and the winners will be announced on Friday 17th August. Before the official winner is announced we will have our very own voting system where we get to choose the book that we think deserves to win. It is always very interesting to see if our winning book is the same as the Children’s Book Council winner. The announcement of the winning title will be made before Children’s Book Week which runs from Saturday 18th – Friday 24th August. The theme for Book Week this year is “Champions Read”.
