The Fantastic Book Awards (FBA) is an annual book event designed to encourage children to read for pleasure. Challenge your year 5 and 6 pupils to select the story books they consider the best, through a range of creative activities. FBA is a chance for pupils to meet, discuss and share views about their reading in an informal way. You can run the FBA as a book club for targeted groups or extend it to a whole class. It is ideal for inspiring a variety of readers from reluctant to the more able.

The five winning titles for the Fantastic Book Awards are to be announced by pupils in primary schools across Lancashire and selected from nominations of over 30 books. The main aim of the awards is to support children aged 9 to 11 years in reading for pleasure by introducing them to newly published fiction titles and encouraging them to read and discuss the books.
