Eureka - A Popular Science Book Promotion for Children: Introduction

The Aventis Prize celebrates the very best in popular science writing for adults and children.

Each year a general prize is awarded to the author of the best science book for adults, and a junior prize goes to the author of the best children's science book. The Aventis Prizes have grown to be one of the world's most prestigious non-fiction literary prizes.

The children’s books in this promotion have either been shortlisted for or won the Aventis Junior Science Award.

In this, the first non fiction promotion for children, Clare County Library presents an excellent selection of information books which is representative of collections of children’s science books in stock in all its library branches.

With greater emphasis on science on both the primary and post-primary school syllabi, these titles should help parents, teachers and children choose from a range of the best science books available.

Many Dorling Kindersley books are featured and are second to none for facts, illustrations and their overall excellent presentation of subjects ranging in diversity from evolution to space or the human body to the oceans.

This promotion accompanies Clare County Library’s adult book promotion by the same name.
