Long list open for suggestions!

Since the success of our last awards, members of JAB have been looking around for suggestions for the 2016 awards. We have found some real treasures, but are worried that we might miss others- some of which might not have been published yet! So- it is with great excitement, we ask- please let us know of any books that you would like considered for this year's awards.

We will be having six categories this year:

Picture book

Quality Fiction



Read Aloud 

and new for 2016

Moving on... books to move Year 6 children on to the next stage.

We are open for suggestions until the 3rd April 2016 and the long list will be announced on the 23rd April 2016. 

Please contact us if you have any suggestions or if you wish to know anything else. We are interested in books that offer quality- something a bit different, something that might not automatically come to the attention of teachers, children and parents. Ideally, we would like copies of the books as it makes life much easier at this end!

Teachers, librarians, teaching assistants, children, parents, grandparents, authors, illustrators, publishers... everyone is welcome to nominate for the long list! 

We look forward to hearing from you!
