BBC Children's Books is planning to launch the Newsround Yearbook later this year.

On screens continuously since 1972, the original version of the show was called John Craven's Newsround. The more modern offering - simply called Newsround - continues to attract strong viewer numbers both on air and online. It has an audience of nearly one million viewers and attracts an average of 200,000 to its website.

The Yearbook will be completely interactive with pages throughout for aspiring young reporters to write their own stories or attach their favourite newspaper cuttings.

There will also be information on what makes news newsworthy, tips on reporting, facts about journalism and presenter questionnaires from some of the Newsround team.

The book will be split into six major categories focusing on environment and nature, politics, citizenship, science and technology and entertainment and sport. Aimed at seven to nine year olds, it will retail for £9.99 when it launches in September.
