The KPMG Children’s Books Ireland Awards Junior Juries’ Programme is a unique activity for schools, libraries and book clubs, designed to encourage children and young people to read widely and to engage with reading in an innovative and exciting way. Young readers ‘shadow’ the adult judges of the book awards panel in reading, discussing and assessing the shortlisted books each year. Here you will find our archive of Junior Juries’ packs.

Participating groups make their own selection of suitable titles from the books shortlisted for the KPMG Children’s Books Ireland Awards in March, using a specially devised activity pack to guide them in their reading. At the end of this process each group is asked to collectively vote for their favourite book. Children’s Books Ireland then invites some of our Junior Juries to attend the official winners’ ceremony in May and to announce the Junior Juries’ Award.

The KPMG Children’s Books Ireland Awards Junior Juries’ Programme is ideal for class groups, book clubs or reading groups and even groups of friends.
