A new UK-wide award has been set up for teachers to vote for literally any children’s books – but among the categories is POETRY, hooray!
Teachers will be able to vote until the end of 2018 for any book published in this year. They will collect all the nominations from across the country at the end of the year. January will see the shortlist of winners released and the final voting process will begin.
TEACHERS! PLEASE send in a vote for your favourite poetry books 2018 as soon as possible!
The Teachers’ Book Awards website is here with all the details.
