The Children's Bookshow takes children's authors to meet tens of thousands of children, introducing the children to how and why writers write, illustrators illustrate. They give children insights into how they too can transform thoughts and feelings into words and pictures. This is not simply a matter of it being enjoyable, it's a necessary part of what we understand by the word 'education'.
This year The Children's Bookshow will give over 3000 children participating in our programme a free, signed copy of the author's book to take home, thanks to the generous support of Unwin Charitable Trust.
The Children’s Bookshow and Carousel offer you a chance to win a signed copy of a book from each of the 16 writers and illustrators in this year’s Bookshow. Plus £200 of FREE books for your school library.
