The Federation of Children's Book Groups
The Federation of Children's Book Groups was the brainchild of Anne Wood, originator of "The Teletubbies", over 30 years ago. The Federation's main role is to act as the umbrella organisation for local autonomous Children's Book Groups all around the UK. The Book Groups organise a variety of activities in their localities, often in conjunction with, or in support of, their local schools and libraries. These may include bringing authors and illustrators to schools, story-telling sessions, and other book-related activities for children. The Federation produces a regular Newsletter and numerous specialised booklists. Also, it organises National Share-A-Story Month each year in May, holds an Annual Conference in the Spring, and coordinates The Red House Children's Book Award.
