What is the HCBA? The Haringey Children’s Book Award is now in its 3rd year, set up by the librarian community in Haringey to promote literacy across the borough through interaction between schools. The award aims to get more children reading and to share fantastic books with them that they may have not noticed. Organised via school bookgroups, children from (mostly) school years 5 – 7 read the shortlist of books, do various activities on them, and then join altogether for workshops and the award ceremony itself, where they vote on the winner. We are seeing a growing community of schools taking part, with 10- 15 schools each year. Our vision is to eventually see all Haringey schools take part in some way.

Previous winners: 2016 SF Said for ‘Phoenix’

2015 Gill Lewis for ‘Scarlet Ibis’
