This has been an exciting month for the FCBG Children’s Book Award. We have learned of the shortlisted titles and seen an entire blog tour dedicated to our three shortlists and 10 shortlisted titles. We invited 10 incredible bloggers to get involved and host content from the authors or illustrators of one book and they did such an amazing job.
We are, as always, so thankful for the support of the publishers, authors, illustrators and bloggers who jumped on board the #FCBGCBA22 Blog Tour.
Voting is open to all UK children and remains open until the end of May. Voting can be done via the FCBG website shortly. A link will be shared and we encourage you and your readers to get involved. Head to fcbg.org.uk for more details on what we do, our events and ways to get involved.
Our shortlisted titles can be bought from Heath Books via the link provided: https://www.heathbooks.co.uk/federation-of-childrens-book-groups-childrens-book-award/
Let’s take a look back at the blog tour- all the links to blogs can be found here and make for some brilliant reading!
