The aim of the UKLA Book Awards is to celebrate children’s books. These awards are unique as they are judged entirely by teachers, who are able to share the books with their classes and determine what works with young readers.
Sixty teachers were involved in generating this shortlist and they were looking for titles that “enhance all aspects of literacy learning”. The winners will be announced on Friday 8th July 2016.
Titles that are available for students to read on RM Books include:
Hercufleas by Sam Gayton and Peter Cottrill (illustrator)
The Imaginary by A.F Harrold (author) and Emily Gravett (illustrator)
The Boundless by Kenneth Oppel
There Will Be Lies by Nick Lake
All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven
