The winners are:

Chooks in Dinner Suits by Diane Jackson Hill and Craig Smith (picture fiction category);

Welcome to Country by Aunty Joy Murphy and Lisa Kennedy (nonfiction category);

Rainforest Camp: Juliet Nearly a Vet by Rebecca Johnson (fiction category).

As a budding writer myself it was inspiring to read how all of these authors have been able to incorporate something they are passionate about into a work of fiction. As this blog is my way of getting important messages across about how parents and teachers can teach young children about how they can protect their world, writing books is another way for children to enjoy and learn at the same time.

Check my reviews out here if you need to check up on them! 

Congratulations to these three winners and all those in the shortlist.
