Hold On! Shortlisted Again! – Wilderness Society

Every year the Wilderness Society shortlists the best children's nature books, before a panel of judges crowns a winner. Showcasing some of the best writers and illustrators working in children's literature, the award promotes a love of nature in kids.

I’m thrilled again that the wonderful story about how science stepped in to save the Spotted Handfish has been shortlisted for the Wilderness Society Environment Award for children’s Literature 2021 - non-fiction category.

The winners of the Environment Award for Children's Literature 2021 will be announced in a special awards ceremony, taking place in Nature Book Week from 6 to 12 September. It's a packed week of events with workshops and talks where all things nature books are discussed.

Note: Purchase any of the shortlisted books from independent bookseller Harry Hartog and they’ll donate 10% of sales to the Wilderness Society to protect the places and wildlife we love.
