This year’s theme is ‘Escape to Everywhere.’
Each year across Australia, The 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.
During this time your child will be involved in the Book Week character dress up day, attending the performance ‘Super Duper’ and being able to purchase affordable books from our Scholastic Book Fair.
As the Book Fair is such a valuable event we have decided to run it over three weeks so we can maximise the opportunities for children and families to purchase books.
This year’s theme, Escape to Everywhere, is an exciting one that leads their imagination. Students can choose to come dressed as a favourite book character or something associated with the Escape to Everywhere theme.
There are many wonderful shortlisted books that students will have the opportunity to share in their classroom and then later to borrow. Six books from each category are short listed, including Early Childhood, Picture Books, Younger Readers and Picture Books.
