The “Radical Readers” write reviews!

In July, the prestigious English Children’s Book Prize, the Kate Greenaway Medal, is awarded again. This is a British award for outstanding illustrations of children’s and young people’s books, which has been presented annually together with the Carnegie Medal for the best children’s and young people’s book since 1955. The prize is named after Kate Greenaway, a popular English illustrator of 19th century children’s books. Nominated books must have been published in the United Kingdom and their authors live there. The jury consists of members of the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP). The jury’s decision is accompanied by students from all over the world. The winner will receive a gold medal and 500 pounds sterling worth of books to donate to a library of their choice. Since 2000, the winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal has also received the Colin Mears Award worth 5000 pounds.

Please read the great reviews of the Platanus “Radical Readers” from our class 5b to the nominated books of the shortlist!

And also the “8a’s Amazing Reading Group” participated under the leadership of their English teacher Ms. Schäfer. At the International Literature Festival in September, the students of class 8a even talked to one of the nominated writers, France Hardinge, about her book. Our students wrote reviews about the youth book “Long Way Down” by Jason Reynolds and keep their fingers crossed for the Carnegie Book Award for the best youth book. The reviews of the 8a can be found here!
