Fantastic Book Awards

The Fantastic Book Awards - The Book Club for Years 5-6

Nominations 2018 19

Developed in partnership with schools

The FBA is an annual book event designed to encourage children to read for pleasure. Children aged 9-11 are challenged throughout the year to select the story books they consider the best, through a range of creative activities.
The awards enable pupils to meet, discuss and share views about their reading in an informal way.
FBA can be run as a book club for targeted groups or extended to a whole class. It is ideal for inspiring a variety of readers from reluctant to the more able.
The event runs from September to May.
FBA is included in the PREMIUM PLUS level, or can be purchased as a separate subscription.
