The Children's Book Council of Australia's (CBCA) Book of the Year Awards for 2001 include a new category--Book of the Year: Early Childhood. This category was introduced because some contemporary picture books are for mature readers, and it was recognized that books for young children were often being overlooked. This guide explores books in all categories of the CBCA shortlist (Early Childhood, Picture Book, Younger Readers, Eve Pownall Award for Information Books) except Book of the Year: Older Readers. The guide cites 23 books in all. It includes discussion points that enable teachers and children to focus on significant aspects of each book. (NKA)
