A huge thank you to all the hard-working librarians who have chosen Henry Hoey Hobson for this year’s Readers Cup.

Five regions so far – Brisbane South, Brisbane Bayside, Gold Coast, Capricornia and Somerset/Lockyer – have put HHH on the list of books to be read in their regional competitions in June. Other regions will be declaring their lists in the coming weeks, so fingers crossed!

I’m really looking forward to presenting the cups and medallions to regional finalists in June  and being part of the State Finals to be held in conjunction with the Ipswich Literature Festival in September.

The Readers Cup promotes the love of literature to students in Years 6/7 and 8/9, so if your school hasn’t yet signed up, click here to register. You have until the end of March to join the cool kids. 🙂

  1. Congrats Chris in getting your book nominated for the Readers Cup. You must be chuffed with this achievement:))

  2. Well done Christine. I used to be a primary school teacher myself (Gr.1,3,4). Books and drama and art were part of every day. Kids loved it. I loved it. Are there volunteer reading programs in schools?

    There sure are, Steve. I did reading with the Grades 1s, 2s and 3s for about a decade and a lot of the kids I used to read with as littlies are now big enough to read the books that I write. I get a real kick out of that. 🙂
