Long List For Carnegie and Kate Greenaway Medals Announced

22 Feb 2017

The lists for these two prestigious children’s awards are here again, and with the publication of the long lists coinciding with World Book Day, it is interesting to see what they contain in their respective eightieth and sixtieth anniversaries.

The themes for children, of course reflect the changing times and as always, the judges attempt to hold that particular “mirror up to nature” in their selection. War, displacement, growing up in difficult circumstances and mental health are all encompassed, but in a way one sincerely hopes, that continues to be accessible to our young readers now as in the past.
