Celebrate our best authors and illustrators in New Zealand Book Month

NZBM green logo rgb smNew Zealand Book Month starts today and runs for the whole month of March.  It’s the month where we celebrate all the wonderful authors and illustrators that we have in New Zealand.  Here on the Christchurch Kids Blog there will be lots of cool things happening, including:

  • Fast Five Questions with NZ children’s and young adult authors and illustrators, including David Hill, Sherryl Jordan, Diana Noonan and Donovan Bixley.
  • Guest blog posts from Melinda Szymanik and Barbara Else.
  • Lots of NZ book reviews and promotions.
  • NZ book giveaways.

Make sure you check back in March to help celebrate New Zealand books, authors and illustrators.  You can also check the NZ Book Month page on the library website to see what’s happening in Christchurch throughout the month.

Don’t forget to pick up or download your $5-off voucher that you can put towards any book you buy in March.  For more info see the NZ Book Month website.

    Books are so good for kid’s. I sometimes wonder if it wan’t for compulsory school reading how many kid’s would be reading books at home instead of playing games on their ipads. Anything that encourages kids to read is great, and we have some amazing children’s authors in New Zealand.

      You’re so right! We have some terrific children’s authors in New Zealand. I think its interesting that many of the games the kids are playing started out first as great stories. Maybe the answer is to encourage kids to go back to the source to see if the book is better…
