Carnegie Shortlist 2013

Now that you have all had the chance to look at the shortlist, and read some of the books, what do you think?  I think that this is a very strong list, with a good mixture for boys and girls, a much more balanced list than for a couple of years.  It is also much harder to predict a winner on this list.  If you want to take part in a Twitter conversation about the shortlist this year then follow the hashtag #tweetCKG

SLG LibMeet 2013

 If you are near enough to London to come to this event, then please book yourself in!  It will be a great day of sharing good practice and ideas, sessions on self-advocacy and ebooks – what’s not to enjoy for only £5?  Details of the day, plus booking information can be downloaded from the files box to the right in the folder entitled LibMeet 2013.  Hope to see you there!

Fabulous book bunting!

I just had to put multiple pictures of this beautiful bunting created by Annabel Jeffery from the King’s School Worcester, for a World Book Day display around her school. I am amazed at the hours and hours of work it must have been for her – but what an amazing result!  Students and teachers throughout the school were looking at the bunting and commenting – and no doubt issues have increased as a result!  What a fabulous and creative way to celebrate World Book Day!  What are you doing – anything innovative and special you would like to share?  Please email me at Heart and share your ideas with the world!
