The New Zealand Post Children’s Book Awards Festival – which starts on Monday – is a great chance for you to find out more about this year’s finalists.
In Canterbury we have a fantastic programme of events, including storytelling at the Christchurch Farmer’s Market and a tour around the native bush of Riccarton Bush on Saturday 14 May. There’s also school visits by author, Kyle Mewburn, and some cool competitions that you can enter. Your school might even be celebrating by joining The Big Read on Wednesday 11 May. Make sure you enter our festival competitions for your chance to win some of the finalist books.
