CBCA Book Week is almost over and it is one week of the year that I love as for me Book Week is the celebration of reading and a love of books! Book Week is I believe unique to Australia, in that around the world, countries celebrate World Book Day on the 23rd April, International Children’s Book Day on the 2nd April and Book Lovers Day on the 9th August. But from what I can find in my research, it is one day and not a whole week of celebrations!
Each year has a theme and this year it is ‘Escape to Everywhere’ which is an awesome theme and covers so many children’s books! I think immediately of Where the Wild Things Are by Maurice Sendak, How to Catch a Star by Oliver Jeffers, The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton and gosh so many more!
My boys decided on their costumes only late last week so we busily prepared them over the weekend and this week ( whilst Mum battled a cold/flu!) to get ready for Book Week.
