Inside the Shortlist: 2012 Endorsement
Welcome to the 2012 edition of Inside the Shortlist. The Children’s Book Council of Australia (Queensland Branch) is very proud to be involved in this year’s publication.
Inside the Shortlist is an invaluable resource to those promoting quality Australian literature for children and young adults all around Australia. It contains extensive teacher notes on all of the 2012 shortlisted books, including tips on the use of these books within the national school curriculum. It also provides practical display ideas for each book and links to relevant websites that will be of use to both school and public libraries.
The opportunity to share this information with you in an electronic format is exciting. We believe this format is kinder to the environment, allowing you to print and use only the pages/sections you need, thus eliminating some of the surplus paper floating about our libraries and classrooms!
I know you’ll enjoy this year’s offering and thank you in advance for your support of the Children’s Book Council of Australia (Qld Branch).
President – Children’s Book Council of Australia (Qld Branch)
