CBCA Book of the Year Awards

winners

The Children’s Book Council of Australia announced the surprising Book of the Year Awards, in recognition of the wonder and talent in Australian children’s literature. In celebration of the 70th Anniversary, the CBCA awards reflected the strength and medley of the book industry;  where over 400 books were entered. Judges had the difficult task of choosing only one winner and two honour book recipients from each award category.  As Professor Margaret Hillel (Chair of the CBCA National Board) expresses;  “We are wonderfully privileged to have access to quality literature, especially for children and young adults which is essential for their development of literacy skills. Australian picture books are also recognised internationally for their innovative and creative illustrations. There is a joy with children’s literature that will stand the test of time; from turning the pages and reading together, the reader is enriched with fascination and delight.”
