We are delighted to share the news that our colleague, Mary Roche, is on the shortlist for the prestigious UKLA Academic Book Award 2015 for her beautiful new book Developing Children’s Critical Thinking through Picturebooks: A guide for primary and early years students and teachers, which is published by Routledge. UKLA say: ‘The voices of children and teachers, richly engaged with picturebooks, resound enthrallingly from this enthusiastic, thoughtful and superbly well-informed account of productive classroom practice.’
The award is presented for recently published academic text about the teaching of English for teachers, students, consultants or HE tutors. The panel looks for books that make a lasting, significant contribution to the teaching of English.
We at EARI are delighted with the news and we wish Mary the best of luck with the award!
