Buy Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me
Incredible news for everyone’s favourite puppy! Thinker: My Puppy Poet and Me by Eloise Greenfield and Ehsan Abdollahi has been shortlisted for the Centre for Literacy in Primary Poetry Award 2019!
The CLiPPA is the only award for poetry for children published in the UK. It celebrates excellence in this important field of literature. Winners will be announced on 3rd July at the award ceremony at the National Theatre.
This year the Chair of the Judging panel is AF Harrold, multi-award-winning author, performer and poet. AF will be joined by a range of poetry experts who share a passion for poetry and its place in children’s literacy: Karl Nova – 2018 CLiPPA winner with his debut collection Rhythm and Poetry, Susannah Herbert – director of Forward Arts Foundation and National Poetry Day, Ruth Awolola – highly commended at CLiPPA 2018 with her poems which were included in the Rising Stars: New Young Voices in Poetry collection, Charlotte Hacking – CLPE Learning Programme Leader.
Schools can join in with a fun shadowing scheme! The scheme is all about getting children to read, write and perform poetry using the shortlisted works and the free teaching resources provided by CLPE. Schools then send in videos of children’s performances from which 5 winning groups are selected to perform at the CLiPPA awards ceremony in the summer.
