Children’s Book Reviews

Children’s Book Reviews

The deadline for entries to the Children’s Book Review Competition has been extended to 30 June 2020, and the competition is now open to all Primary School children in Years 2 to 6. Just write a one page review of your favourite book, explaining why other children should read it. Include a picture, if you like. And submit it by 30 June to info@jesmondfestival.org.uk . The competition is organised jointly by Oxfam Books and Music and the Friends of Jesmond Library, for the Jesmond Community Festival.

The guided walk planned as part of the festival has been postponed until after the lockdown, possible until the 2021 festival, but if you can’t wait to explore Reid Park Road and The Grove, possibly during your “exercise hour”, email info@jesmondfestival.org.uk for a copy of John North’s walking notes!
