This year 160 school librarians from across New Zealand have shared their borrowing statistics for 2014 so that we can compile this list of best books for New Zealand children, available here now.
These titles have been voted the most popular in the way it really counts, by students borrowing and reading them from their school library. We have included the most popular New Zealand authors and titles. There are some old favourites, and some new favourites in these lists.
Thank you to all school librarians who contributed to the survey.

The latest issue of Collected magazine is available today. This issue has Summer Reading as it's theme. Follow the link above, or click the cover image to read it now.
Many thanks to those who have contributed articles and reviews for this issue, and to those who have helped with proof-reading and editing - we couldn't do it without your help.
As the number of issues continues to grow, we've made some small changes to the website to accomodate them, so you will now find older issues of Collected on a separate page.
We send all our readers best wishes for the holiday season, and hope you enjoy your summer break - do make sure you find time to fit in plenty of reading!
