The Readings Childrens Book Prize
The Readings Children's Book Prize recognises and celebrates books that families love reading together, or that children read under the covers with a torch late into the night because they can’t bear to put it down—books they tell their friends about. The Prize aims to raise the profile of debut and on-the-rise Australian authors that we believe could make an important contribution to the rich variety of Australian publishing.
Every year, young readers from all over New South Wales judge their very own literary awards. You can join in too, by reading, nominating, and voting for your favourite books in K.O.A.L.A. (Kids Own Australian Literature Awards). You will help give recognition to the authors and books that have most inspired, amused, terrified, enlightened, and engaged you! It's also a great place to find your next great read! more
