Welcome to the Panda Book Awards / 欢迎参与熊猫图书奖

Reading is a fundamental skill for learning, personal growth, and enjoyment.

Every day, the QAIS Library devotes itself to ensure that students are connected to the books and information that will nurture and inspire a love for reading.

The library will host celebrations and plan reading initiatives throughout the year.

We start with The Panda Book Awards.

So what are the Panda Book Awards?

The Panda Book Award initiative invites students and teachers from participating international schools in China and beyond to vote for their favorite book published in the previous two years.
There are four separate title lists according to age level:

  • Young Readers (4 to 6 years) – picture books – Elementary School
  • Middle Readers (7 to 10 years) – chapter books – Elementary School
  • Older Readers (11 to 14 years) – Middle School
  • Mature Readers (15 to 18 years) – High School

The panda was chosen as the program’s mascot as it holds a special place in the hearts of the Chinese people and it is a symbol of peace and a token of forging friendly ties.

The Panda Book Award reading program promises to take our students on an exciting reading adventure to:

  • READ some great books
  • SHARE your thoughts
  • NETWORK with students from participating schools
  • VOTE for your favorite book

Some panda books are already in the library and ready to be checked out!

“We look forward to a year full of good books, library lessons, and community building!”

图书馆将在全年举行庆祝活动,并开展书籍阅读活动。

我们将从熊猫图书奖开始。

那么,什么是熊猫图书奖?

熊猫图书奖主动邀请来自中国和其他国家的国际学校学生和老师参与,投票选出他们最喜欢的近两年出版的书籍。

根据年龄层次,分为下列4个不同的版块:

  • 中级读者(7-10岁)——章节故事书-小学
  • 年长读者(11-14岁)——中学

熊猫之所以被选为活动的吉祥物,因为它在中国人民心中有着特殊的地位,是和平和建立友好关系的象征。
熊猫图书奖阅读活动承诺带领学生们体验一次令人激动的阅读探险:

  • 些好书
