Our CBI Book of the Year Awards shadowing group have been enjoying reading and discussing five of the titles shortlisted for this years awards.
The books we’ve chosen to read are:
Flying Tips for Flightless Birds by Kelly McCaughrain
Tin by Padraig Kenny
Tuesdays Are Just As Bad by Cethan Leahy
The Weight of A Thousand Feathers by Brian Conaghan
The Great Irish Weather Book by Joanna Donnelly & Fuchsia MacAree
The full shortlist can be viewed here.
When we have deliberated over our five chosen titles we will assign each one a score out of 100 and submit our verdict to CBI. The scores submitted by all the shadowing groups across the country are tallied and the highest scoring book will receive the Children’s Choice Award. We’re looking forward to finding out who the winners are on May 22nd!
