Review and win - books for children and young adults, reviewed by children and young adults

Get your students to review their favourite books to be on the New Zealand Book Council website and win great prizes from Scholastic!

Your school and students will each be in to win a fantastic prize pack of books from Scholastic NZ every two months, with the first selections to be made on Friday 27 August – this date has been extended due to low entries.

The best reviewer aged between 5-7 years, 8–12 years, and 13+ will each receive a pack of books courtesy of Scholastic NZ. These reviews will also be published in The School Library, the Book Council’s reviews publication sent to member schools.

The top three students from each age group who submit reviews for the website will also be rewarded. Their reviews will be published on the Book Council site in the ‘Your Reviews’ section of the Kids’ Education site. (

The school that encourages the largest number of entries from their students in relation to its size will receive a pack of new release Scholastic NZ books for their library. Schools do not need to be a member of the Book Council to enter.

To submit a review or three and be in to win these fantastic books, simply email Sarah at with your entries, each attached to the entry form attached, as a word or PDF document. There is a word limit of 200 words for all entries.
