The books to be read have to come from a list of 72 titles, split into two categories based on age, 4-7 and 8-11.  They cover a wide variety of genres so there is bound to be something for everyone in the list.  Encouraging reading amongst younger people is seen to encourage good habits that will be lifelong and help them realise ambitions as well as dream.

Competitions like this can use local printers to produced leaflets for distribution to school kids and their carers.
