The Big Read – National Year of Reading

We want your help.  As part of the National Year of Reading, Book Links is creating a list of children’s books that best define Queensland.  The categories are:

  • Picture Books
  • Younger Readers
  • Older Readers

(similar to the CBCA Awards)

If you have any suggestions of Queensland books that can be incorporated into this list, please email Jenny Stubbs at with the book title and author.

Criteria: Must be in print, paint a picture of Queensland people and the land in which we live.

Once the list has been compiled, children will be invited to take part in a BIG READ for the National Year of Reading in 2012.

    Fantastic idea BL and Jenny! Too many books bashing around in my mind to remember all the superb reads worthy of mention. Will email you my favourites. Dimity
