New Zealand Children's Book Awards

We read two new library books last week during library time. They are both finalists in the New Zealand Children's Book Awards 2011.

The first book we really like is, "Baa, Baa Smart Sheep, by Marc Sommerset. When Andrea read this book we laughed out loud at all the funny bits - especially Turkey Lurkey and the fact that he was gullable.

You should pop into the library and have a read and see if you would ever eat smarty beans !

The second book is about a duck and marmalade jam. Sounds like a weird mix but it makes for a very funny book. Room 13 kids really liked the rhyming words and the way the words flowed into one another.

  1. We have the Post Book Award books in our library too. Our favourite was Baa Baa Smart Sheep too. Ms Price was laughing out loud with us as she read the book to us. Some of us will vote for that book as our favourite. We also liked Shadow of the Boyd which is a junior fiction finalist. Which book do you think will win?
