Sheffield sends huge congratulation to the new Children's Laureate 2013- 2015
Malorie was the overall winner of the Sheffield Children's Book Award with Noughts and Crosses in 2002.
Her key hopes are;
- to encourage teachers to read to children for 10 minutes every day
- to encourage every child to have a library card! (We strongly agree with those sentiments here in Sheffield.)
- Use short stories on line to encourage further reading with young people.
Malorie says Wonder by R j Palacio is one her favourite books - ours too - see our current shortlist!
