Speech Pathology Australia – Book of the Year 2016

Speech Pathology Australia’s Book of the Year Shortlist 2016

The Speech Pathology Australia Book of the Year Awards aim to promote children’s books as literacy tools, as well as raising awareness of the role of speech pathologists play in helping children develop language and literacy skills. The awards:

  • promote quality Australian children’s literature;
  • enhance awareness of the role speech pathologists play in language and literacy development; and
  • encourage a love of reading.

Each year Speech Pathology Australia holds a book award across five categories: Birth to 3, Three to 5, Five to 8, Eight to 10, and Indigenous Children. You can check out, or reserve, almost all of the books that have been shortlisted for this year’s awards at Cockburn Libraries.

I was a teacher for six years before becoming a Young People's Services Librarian. I taught everything from kindy to year seven and I'm really excited to be working towards greater early literacy with the children of Cockburn.
