Members of the Prep and College Book Clubs members have been judging the shortlisted books for the Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize 2019. The Prize aims to inspire young people to read about science and promotes the writing of excellent, accessible books for under children and young people.
The six best books are chosen by an expert adult judging panel and then handed over to groups of young people across the UK to choose a winner. St Bede’s is one of those groups and Book Club members have been looking at the books in terms of layout, ease of use and appeal before voting on their winner
We wait to see which book has won nationally, but our vote is being cast for Making with States of Matter by Anna Claybourne, a book packed full of fascinating things to do for budding scientists.
