Birmingham Children’s Book Group

Birmingham Children’s Book Group is a friendly, local cluster of parents and teachers united by our passion for children’s literature.  We are always on the lookout for new ideas and new ways to bring the joy of books to more children – and we are always ready to welcome new members.  We are also lucky to be involved in testing books as part of the National Children’s Book Award – the only award in which children are the judges.  Pupils at local member schools have the chance to read and vote on recently published books.
