The Definitive Guide to the CBCA Awards

Simplify your purchasing decisions and match books to readers

The CBCA Awards

While the CBCA Awards Shortlist titles are sure to be amazing, there are many more wonderful books in the Notables list that your students will enjoy.

In the absence of an unlimited budget, knowing which of those 167 books are going to be the best additions to your library can be difficult.

The Book Curator’s Guide to the CBCA Book of the Year Awards offers detailed reviews of the titles in every category, including the Eve Pownall and Crichton Awards. It is the only publication of its kind, making it incredibly useful for simplifying your purchasing decisions AND as an ongoing resource for matching readers with books they’ll love.

The Shortlist is announced on Tuesday 27th, and our CBCA Awards guide will post to you Tuesday 3rd April. The online version, complimentary to all librarians who order the print copy, will be accessible from Easter Friday 30th April (email address required).
