What is the Panda Book Award?
Panda Book Awards
reading initiative promises to take our students on an exciting reading adventure and invites students from participating schools to vote for their favorite book published in
. It encourages young people to read quality books selected by international librarians throughout China. The program
the fall of 2017
will take place in the first two weeks after
Chinese Year in 2018
. The Panda books are carefully chosen to represent an international selection. Each school division has its unique list.
The panda was chosen as the mascot for thIs reading initiative, as it holds a special place in the hearts of the Chinese people as a symbol of peace and a token of forging friendly ties. Not only do the Panda books promote reading, it also brings together school librarians across China who work daily to introduce kids to the fantastic world of books.
