Now is a great time to sign up your school to take part in this year’s Juniper Book Awards.  We have just announced our carefully selected longlist of outstanding books, aimed to engage readers aged 10+ and are building up the excitement as we approach the launch of the shortlist on Monday 16th October.

With the sign-up fee starting at just £82, this is a cost-effective way of helping you develop a reading for pleasure community, bringing you the opportunity to involve your whole school with book clubs, activities and projects inspired by the 6 shortlisted books.

It has generated a buzz around the specific books, it has prompted discussion and encouraged other classes to take part in their own book chat sessions. It has been an entry point for Year 5 to get involved in a book group. It has supported pupils and teachers as reading role models.” – St Cedd’s School.”

Visit our website to learn about how schools have embraced their love of reading with our awards, and the creativity they have inspired.

“Students engaged with the books more enthusiastically, by doing something with the book rather than only discussing it they are learning more.” – Anon.
