Well, the Page Turners are trying the job out this term. They are proof reading a manuscript of a book, Going Batty by John Agard, which will be eventually published. The scheme that they are taking part in is called Young Editors. The Page Turners have been given the job of reading the manuscript, correcting any spelling mistakes, making comments, suggesting where to insert a picture (can submit artwork) and score each chapter and then the book as a whole out of 10.
Fancy having a go yourself? Come along, we meet in the Library on Thursdays at 12pm.
The Page Turners were very excited as they can start looking at the books and deciding which age groups that they are suitable for and writing questions to ask the children that they will be interviewing over the next few weeks.
Come back and check the blog for updates about the book awards very soon.
We have decided that we are going to ‘shadow’ the Kate Greenaway Awards this year. They haven’t said what the books will be yet but we have been writing some notes on what we are going to put on our website for the Kate Greenaway Awards. We are also going to make a display themed with the Kate Greenaway awards.
