Reading Blog: SHORTLISTS ANNOUNCED FOR THE UKLA Awards

In the only national book awards which are judged by teachers, the choices reflect their preference for the diversity and quality offered by small independent publishers. Andersen Press, Barrington Stoke, Gecko Press, David Fickling Books, The Bucket List, Two Hoots and Words & Pictures all feature on these lists, which come with the unique guarantee from teachers that these are books which have been tried and tested in the classroom.

The winners will be announced on July 6th at the UKLA International Conference, The Mercure Cardiff Holland House Hotel.
