The awards are organised by the School Library Service (the people who lend us books that are in the big blue plastic boxes) who pick six books for children to read who are taking part. The children are asked to write what they think about each book and also once they have read all six books vote for their favourite one.
They are then invited to attend an award ceremony where the winner is announced. After the ceremony books can be bought and children are able to meet the authors.
