Yoto Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Book Awards 2022

On Thursday 17th March the Yoto Carnegie and Kate Greenaway medal shortlist was announced.

The annual book awards were launched to our Primary and Secondary reading groups and over a period of 12 weeks, both groups are working with Mrs. Dewhurst, Head of Secondary Library, looking at the 8 shortlisted titles.

Pupils who are taking part , also known as ‘shadowers’ as they ‘shadow’ the judging process for the Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals;  read, discuss and review the books on each shortlist, engage in reading-related activities which they share online, and vote for their favourites to win the Shadowers’ Choice Awards.

Here is a list of the Shortlisted titles:
