There are many prizes that recognise brilliant writing for young people - but the Teach Primary Book Awards, hosted in association with the literacy resources website Plazoom, is unique in highlighting titles that not only will children love to read, but that will also support learning - for example, by opening up opportunities for deeper discussion and encouraging language play. Selected by a panel of judges including well loved authors and literacy experts, these are books that teachers can confidently suggest to parents and share with pupils; perfect for exploring in the classroom as well as enjoying at home.
Meet two young adventurers as they discover the ancient art of reading outdoor clues. Join them as they learn to read a full moon, decode the colour of the ocean and forecast the weather with a rainbow, uncovering the secret signs of nature and a world of forgotten skills.
