The shortlists for the Booktrust Best Book Awards have been announced, and we’re incredibly pleased that two of our apps have been recognised!
Little Red Riding Hood and Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm are both nominated in the Best Tech Stuff category, and make up half of the four-strong shortlist, alongside Signed Stories: A Lark in the Ark by Peter Bently and Lynne Chapman, and The Slightly Annoying Elephant by David Walliams and Tony Ross.
The Best Tech award recognises digitally enhanced storytelling. It will reward apps, ebooks and other products that use sounds, visuals, and games in innovative ways to make the reading experience richer and more interactive.
And now that the shortlists have been announced, it’s up to schools, libraries, children’s centres and bookshops to decide the winners! You can find out more about the awards, including how to register to vote, on the Booktrust Best Book Awards website, here.
