Calling readers of all ages, parents, grandparents, teachers, librarians: in fact anyone who loves children’s books.
CILIP is giving you the chance to have your say in the search to find the nation’s favourite Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medal winning books of all time.
CILIP’s online poll to find the top winner for each Medal will be launched on Friday April 20th 2007 at Seven Stories in Newcastle, kicking off a season of celebration to mark the 70th birthday of the Carnegie Medal and the 50th birthday of the Kate Greenaway Medal.
A panel of children’s book experts, including three former chairs of the Carnegie & Kate Greenaway judging panel has selected a Top 10 of winning titles for both Medals, from the 120 marvellous books which have won these two prestigious awards since they were first awarded in 1937 and 1957 respectively.
Will you agree with the judges? Have they included your own favourites? Which books will you vote for?
Find out which books have made the Top 10s, and write a review of any of the past winners for each Medal at www.ckg.org.uk. Re-read your favourites, share them with your family and cast your votes online before 12 noon, Thursday, 14 June.
On that Midsummer’s Night, the results of the vote will be announced at a huge celebration party at the British Library in London.
