The PETA Guide to the Children's Book Council Awards Shortlist, 2003.
The Children's Book Council of Australia Awards contain several categories for the best books published for children in 2002. This PETA guide looks at all categories, with the exception of Older Readers. The purpose of the guide is to suggest ways of exploring each shortlisted book, focusing on its significant aspects. It points out that children should be encouraged to consider every aspect of the books, beginning with their front covers, and continuing with relevance and originality of theme, style of writing, degree of engagement, and development of setting, plot, and character. The Early Childhood category cites six books, providing questions to answer before reading, during reading, after reading, and about artistic/design analysis. The Picture Book of the Year category also cites six books and provides questions. The Book of the Year: Younger Readers lists six books and also provides questions. Finally, the Eve Pownall Award for Information Books category lists six books and provides questions. (NKA)
