BOOK WEEK 2017

Each year across Australia, The Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Children’s Book Week. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children's literature. The theme for Book Week 2017 is ‘ESCAPE TO EVERYWHERE’

Do you remember dressing up as a favourite character for Book Week parades in Primary School? How about curling up at bedtime with a book and being transported to a world of fantastical creatures or larger-than-life characters?

Imagination drives creativity and innovation. It allows us to envision and escape to worlds beyond our own, to times other than the here and now. It turns boxes into racing cars, dining chairs and blankets into pirate forts, and dress-ups into sweeping ball gowns. Imagination is behind every fairy tale and picture book we cherish from our childhoods.

Our school library has a range of books that can take YOU on a journey, to ‘Escape to Everywhere’ Look out for the BOOK WEEK PICKS to help you with your reading preferences.
