The Channel Island Children’s Book Award is looking for books which were published for the first time in English between June 2017 and July 2018. You can usually find the year it was published within the first few pages of the book and there are a variety of ways to find the month.
One way is to do a search for the book on Amazon or another bookseller website as this usually gives the publication date. Please note you must be careful with this method as they may have different publication dates for paperback and hardcover copies.
Here is a list of a few websites which might be useful in finding book recommendations but please let us know if you have any more suggestions.
The CICBA is a book award aimed at children in years 5,6&7 within the Channel Islands and we’d ask that only those children nominate and vote. In the future, we are hoping to introduce more awards for different age groups so that everyone can get involved.
