Every year in September CBI launches the annual Reading Campaign. An Irish children’s illustrator is commissioned to create an original piece of artwork, which is reproduced on posters, bookmarks and stickers for use in libraries, bookshops, schools and homes across the country.
This artwork also adorns the cover of the Inis Reading Guide, an A5 booklet featuring the best children’s books of the year. The Inis Reading Guide archive can be accessed here. The Inis Reading Guide is available free of charge at public libraries across the country and is a key guide for librarians, teachers and others buying books for children.
The aim of the Reading Campaign is to instil a love of reading for pleasure in young people across the country.
This project is run by Children’s Books Ireland
