An internet search revealed this: ‘Hidden Books‘ initiative aims to encourage children to read and explore outdoors more. … Children who find the books can take them away, read them, and hide them again if they choose.’
So this year I am involved in this, so will be posting at intervals.
East Sussex Children’s Book Award an annual event run by East Sussex Library and Information Service aimed at raising the profile and value of reading for pleasure. Children vote for their favourite book from a shortlist. A series of author events at schools across East Sussex and Brighton and Hove are organised to which all participating schools are invited and a final celebration at a prestigious Sussex venue to announce the winner is held in June.
