Warwickshire Junior Book Award 2020

Welcome to the Warwickshire Junior Book Awards 2020 (WJBA)

 

The 4 books that have been shortlisted are: 

 

Swimming Against The Storm by Jess Butterworth

 

Runaway Robot by Frank Cottrell-Boyce

 

Wildspark by Vashti Hardy

 

D-Dog Day by Tom Palmer

 

 

 

 

Over the next few weeks we will be sharing different activities which link to the 4 shortlisted books.

 

We appreciate that due to us not being in school at the minute, you can't swap and share the books as you normally would. Therefore, we will read the first chapter of each book to you so that you can get a feel for the story. If you are interested in reading the book further, you can access it using the Warwickshire Library online service. Here you will be able to borrow some of the e-books https://fe.bolindadigital.com/wldcs_bol_fo/b2i/mainPage.html?b2bSite=6404 .

 

If you aren't a member of the Warwickshire Library, you can join for free by following this link https://www.warwickshire.gov.uk/jointhelibrary

 

Share your thoughts and opinions about the books with us as they will all go towards who wins the Warwickshire Junior Book Award.

 

The winner will be announced during the week beginning the 1st July via the Warwickshire Digital Award Ceremony.
