Pupils choose winning science book in national competition

Worcester Editorial 14th Dec, 2016   0

CHILDREN at a Worcester school have helped judge the prestigious Royal Society Young People’s Book Prize.

Youngsters from years three to six at Perry Wood Primary School recently voted for ‘How Machines Work’, by David Macauley, as their favourite book from six shortlisted children’s titles.

Most of the other 74 judging clubs from school’s across the UK agreed with them and Mr Macauley’s book was announced as the winner at a recent award ceremony.

The prize celebrates the best books that communicate science to young people and aims to inspire them to read.
