The Buckinghamshire Children’s Book Award was launched in 2018 to promote the best books written for children and young adults that were published in the last 12 months. The aim of the Bucks Book Award is to inspire and empower young people to read more and to share their love of reading with others. We want to encourage reading for pleasure, independent choice, and wider reading habits.
