ALCS children’s educational book award 2015

I’ve been invited to be one of three judges for the ALCS children’s book award this year, which involves reading 33 children’s books for 5–11 year olds, coming up with a long list and then meeting with my fellow judges to come up with the winner. It’s a great opportunity to read through recently published books and survey the landscape of children’s educational titles. Some are going for trade, mass-market appeal with bright illustrations and lots of humour, while others stick to the traditional children’s non-fiction format but add in some lively elements such as puzzles.
