UKLA Children's Book Awards
The UK Literacy Association has announced its shortlists for its 2009 Children's Book Awards in two categories, 3-11 and 12-16. These are distinguished from other book awards by focusing on literacy, which is interpreted here as being about the expression of meaning and ideas through challenging use of language, imaginative expression, illustration and other graphics. The awards are also unique as the shortlists are decided by teachers. The winners will be announced in July.
