Book Week is Next Week!
Each year since 1945 the CBCA has brought children and books together across Australia through CBCA Book Week. During this time schools and public libraries spend one glorious week celebrating books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators. Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians create colourful displays, develop activities, run competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading. You will often see parades with students dressed as their favourite book character.
Theme: Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds
Dates: Term 3: August 21 – 27
Our book week activities will be held virtually and we are nominating Tuesday 24 August as Dress Up day. Attend your class meets in your costumes and be prepared to discuss books, books, books!
