Reading for pleasure, writing for pleasure

Three opportunities to get kids reading and writing for pleasure:

The Wicked Young Writers' Awards have launched - there are competitions for various age ranges from 5 to 25. Entries should be no more than 750 words and can be in any genre. The awards are supported by former Children's Laureate, Michael Morpurgo, who has provided some writing tips on the site.

Scottish Book Trust's Book of the Month page currently has the chance to win the 12-16 category winner in the Scottish Children's Book Awards. You won't know what that is until 23rd February, but it's one of:
  • The Blackhope Enigma by Teresa Flavin
  • Prisoner of the Inquisition by Theresa Breslin
  • Wasted by Nicola Morgan. 
We have them all in the Library so you could borrow them now.

Richard and Judy's Children's Reads for Spring 2012 have been launched by WH Smith. There are 10 titles, of which the Library has the 3 below. Click the link above to see the rest - they'll be arriving here soon.
