CBI Book of the Year Awards


Established in 2005, the Children’s Books Ireland Shadowing Scheme is a unique programme for schools and libraries, designed to encourage awareness and enjoyment of the CBI Book of the Year Awards.

Participating classes and junior book clubs make their own selection of suitable titles from the books shortlisted for the CBI Awards in March, using a specially devised activity pack to guide them in their reading. At the end of this process each group is asked to collectively vote for their favourite book. CBI then announces the Children’s Choice Award during the official prize ceremony in May.

Please fill in the attached sign-up form and return it to CBI for the chance to get involved! To download a form, click here.
