The Sheffield Children's Book awards celebrates books and what they do for the Sheffield community. The awards were launched in 1988 to encourage children and young people to read and to highlight the best literature published each year.

Hundreds of children and young people from across the city take part in the Sheffield Children's Book Awards through local schools and libraries.

You can vote for your favourite book either via your school, or by borrowing the shortlisted books from your local library and filling in the voting form.
