Coventry Inspiration Book Awards
SCHOOLS LIBRARY SERVICE INSPIRATION BOOK AWARDS
This year, our whole school are joining in with the ‘Coventry Inspiration Book Awards’.
WHAT ARE THEY?
Each year the Schools Library Service runs its own book awards. This year, we, with primary and secondary schools across the county, are taking part to choose the winners. There are 5 age categories of books to choose from for children aged 4 to 18. In each category 8 books have been chosen, by children’s librarians and teachers, which reflect a diverse range of genres and styles giving different viewpoints on the world. They were chosen to help children find the right story which grabs their attention and makes them want to carry on reading for ENJOYMENT. Across the school we are reading the following categories:
CATEGORY YEAR GROUPS
What's The Story Reception, Year 1 and 2
Telling Tales Year 3 and 4
Hooked on Books Year 5 and 6
We will be reading, commenting and voting for the children’s favourites!
The awards have now started and schools across Coventry children are busy reading the books in their categories.
Open the documents below to find out about each of the eight books in each category ...
Each week the children will vote online for their favourite book in their category. Our first vote will be on Friday 4th February, when each class will vote for their favourite book in their category. Over the weekend, all of the votes from across Coventry will be counted and on Monday 7th February the book with the least amount of votes is KNOCKED OUT. This repeats each week until Monday 7th March when the FINAL THREE are left. We then have 10 days to vote for our winning book from these final three. The winning books will be announced on Wednesday 16th March 2022.
Use the link to the book categories below: there are LOTS of links, once you click on one of the books, to the author’s websites and videos, as well as ideas for other books they may like if they enjoyed that one. Why not vote at home too!
