Now in their eighth year, the Sainsbury's Children's Book Awards in partnership with BookTrust aim to highlight the best children's books for families to share together. Judged by a panel of experts, the awards aim to encourage parents and carers to spend more time reading with their children.
Can a birdwatcher outwit an escaped convict? Twitch has three pet chickens, four pigeons, swallows nesting in his bedroom and a passion for birdwatching. On the first day of the summer holidays, he arrives at his secret hide to find police everywhere: a convicted robber has broken out of prison and is hiding in Aves Wood. Can Twitch use his talents for birdwatching to hunt for the dangerous prisoner and find the missing loot?
Our aim at BookTrust is to get all children reading, regularly and by choice. Having so many wonderful children’s books available where families pick up their shopping is a really important opportunity to get books into the hands of children from all backgrounds and reading levels, so we’re delighted to partner with Sainsbury’s on their Children’s Book Awards.
