Established in 1995, the awards are presented by the English Association to the best children’s picture books of the year. Awards are given to Fiction and Non-Fiction in age ranges 4-7 years and 7-11 years. The winning books are chosen by the editorial board of English 4-11, the journal for primary teachers published by the English Association and the United Kingdom Literacy Association, from a shortlist selected by a panel of teachers and Primary specialists.
It's the beginning of a new day, and through a series of enticing riddles, nature invites a little girl to come out and explore. Who scribbles on the sidewalk with glistening ink? Snail! Who's a comma in a long, long sentence of a stream? Tadpole! Active readers will delight in the clever language and striking illustrations. With each page turn, children will solve the riddles about the familiar animals, plants and the weather that the girl in the story encounters outdoors throughout a whole day.
