Coventry Inspiration Book Award - it's a Knockout!

Guess what? Baby Goes Baaaaa! has been shortlisted for the Coventry Inspiration Book Award 2013. Exciting eh? It is in the Never Too Young category, with books aimed at babies and pre-school children. There is some stiff competition but, with your help, I could be in with a chance.

SO... if you or child likes Baby Can Baaaaa! then please, please, please vote for it!! Anyone can vote. Just click this link - it takes a moment. Don't worry that it asks for your school: the books in this category are for 0 - 4 year olds, so votes will be from parents - just put 'pre-school'.

The Coventry award is a little different. A lot of awards shortlist from books published in the previous year, but this one specifies only that books must still be in print and have not previously won a major award, which means there is a mix of old and new titles. It's also a knock-out: we start with 12 books, then, starting on January 21st, every week the 2 books with the least votes are eliminated!!! HELP!!!!!

I remembered that Class Two at the Zoo was also shortlisted for the Coventry award and it got through to the final round. I looked it up on the blog and discovered it was part of my very first blog post ever. Fancy that.
