Book Review Contest Winners 2023!

Contest winners

Thank you to all the participants of the For All Our Kids Annual Book Review Contest 2023. We are pleased to see that some of you were repeat contestants! Your contribution helps us reach out and distribute books to more rural schools.

The selection of books showed a range of genres, including picture books, fantasy, science fiction, humour, mystery and biography. Our judges report that they enjoyed reading the reviews and learning how the contestants related to the book. They also stated that it was a difficult choice selecting the contest winners. As a result we have two second place winners for class 7.

We hope other children read the reviews and have a go at the books themselves.

Here’s some food for thought! We know that reading improves cognitive skills. How else does our brain respond when we read? Read on to know more:
