Booktrust Early Years Awards 2007

Latest update 'The Booktrust Early Years Awards are no longer running'

The Booktrust Early Years Awards celebrated and publicised the range of books published for babies, toddlers and pre-school children. Known as the Sainsbury’s Baby Book Award from 1999 to 2004, books were judged in three categories:The Best Book for babies under one-year-old, which focussed on board and novelty books; The Best Picture Book for children up to five-years-old, which focussed on picture books; and The Best Emerging Illustrator for children up to five-years-old, which rewarded the most talented and exciting new illustrators. The Booktrust Early Years Awards last ran in 2010 and are no longer running.
