Bookbuzz for schools is back for 2014!
The Booktrust are delighted to confirm that Bookbuzz will be running again in 2014 and, thanks to the generous support of children's book publishers, for the second year running we have been able to freeze the price at £2.50 per participating student.
Every student has the chance to choose their own book, from a list of 17 titles suitable for 11 - 13-year-olds. The books are carefully selected by a panel of children's book experts, including librarians and teachers, to ensure there is a book for every student to enjoy, whatever their interests or reading level.
Each school that takes part will receive:
A book and bookmark for every participating student to keep
Two sets of the Bookbuzz books
The Bookbuzz Guide to Reading for Pleasure, including a practical guide to creating a reading for pleasure school, evidence to support the importance of reading for pleasure, specific ideas using the Bookbuzz books, and activity sheets
Access to a website packed with a wealth of information for you and your students, including extracts from the books, a film featuring the Bookbuzz authors, downloadable resources and exclusive competitions
Registration is now open!
Registration opens today for schools that wish to register early, although schools have until Wednesday 23 July to register. The new booklist for 2014 will be announced on Wednesday 30 April.
