A Letter from Nicole and Wayne

Spring has sprung and lots has happened since I last posted.

I'll be posting some of the book news I've noted over the last month or so soon.  But first, there's some exciting news on the Kids' Lit Quiz Australia front!

The 2015 competition has been announced! In the week of 5 March, there'll be 5 heats (in Ipswich, Brisbane, Orange, Canberra  and Sydney) before the Australian final is held on Saturday 14 March at the Monkey Baa Theatre, Darling Harbour in Sydney.  There's more information at 2015 Australian Quiz and FAQ: Kids' Lit Quiz Australia.

After the jump, there's a letter from the Australian coordinator, Nicole Deans and the quizmaster and founder of Kids' Lit Quiz International, Wayne Mills to teachers, librarians and teacher-librarians explaining how the Kids' Lit Quiz competition can build literacy in schools in a fun and exciting way.
