Revised NZPBC

The following list of 60 picturebooks were nominated in 2015 by a range of teachers, librarians, authors and publishers in an online survey. At this stage classroom activities have not been developed for these picturebooks, but we hope that the ideas for the original 22 picturebooks on this website can be used as a source of inspiration. Starred books are the ones included in the original collection.
