Great news for our Farmer Freddie – the second book in the series, Farmer Freddie at the seaside, has been chosen Picture Book of the Year 2015! This means this book will be the central title during the Dutch National Read Aloud Days coming January, with Farmer Freddie himself being the main character of the campaign.


voorleesdagenThe National Read Aloud Days are one of the Netherlands’ most important book campaigns, organized by the organization for Collective Promotion for the Dutch Book. Each year, a jury consisting of children’s librarians pick their 10 favourite picture books from titles published over the past year, judging the books on their story, illustrations and possibilities for interaction with the readers. In 2014, the first title in the series Farmer Freddie was one of the top 10 picture books. But this year, Farmer Freddie at the Seaside has been elected as absolute number 1, which means Farmer Freddie will be the face of this year’s campaign.
