To celebrate New Zealand Book Week I have two prize packs of NZ books for kids and teens to give away.
Picture Books Prize Pack
Young Adult Prize Pack
I have a Picture Books Prize Pack and a Young Adult Prize Pack to give away. To get in the draw for these prizes all you have to do is leave a comment (along with your name and email address) on this post telling me ‘What is your favourite NZ book for kids or teens?’ In your comment also let me know which prize pack you would like to win (the picture books, YA books or both).
Competition closes Sunday 1 November (NZ only).
I love New Zealand books and I’m happy to shout it from the rooftops. We have so many wonderful, talented authors and illustrators here in NZ who write for kids of all ages. My personal mission, as a librarian and a blogger is to spread the word about New Zealand books and get as many kids (and adults) reading them as possible. I’ve also had the absolute joy of judging our New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults, which really highlighted the breadth of literature that we have here in New Zealand for our young people.
I’ve read and reviewed many NZ books here on My Best Friends Are Books over the years. I’ve got so many favourite books that I come back to again and again (especially picture books). Here are just a few of my favourite NZ books for kids and teens, along with the links to my reviews if you want to know more about them:
There are many more fantastic books that I’ve missed off this list, so it is no way complete. I have a New Zealand category here on the blog so if you want to find more New Zealand content click on the category on the right hand side of the page.
