CILIP Carnegie & Greenaway Resources

Shadowing 2014 V2 1 CoverIf you’re looking to encourage children and young people to read and explore fantastic novels and illustrated books through your library then register for the CILIP Carnegie & Kate Greenaway Medals shadowing scheme.

Shadowing is simple, adaptable and free to register.   Now in its 20th year, the scheme has over 4,700 registered reading groups across the UK engaging up to 90,000 children and young people in reading activity.

Shadowing takes place in school libraries, public libraries and classrooms. After the shortlists are announced on 18 March groups write reviews, write blogs, upload videos, create polls and personalise their homepages. Shadowers can watch videos of the shortlisted authors and illustrators talking about their work and what inspires them. Free educational resources and ideas for activities for group leaders will be available on the website.  Shadowing ends when the winners are announced on 23 June 2014.
