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.
2017 Theme: Escape to Everywhere 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.
In Room 11 we have read so many exciting novels this year that we just couldn’t decide on one. We are Escaping to Everywhere through our cooperative readers, class novels and favourite stories of all time.
Aubin Grove’s celebration of Book Week Parade will be held tomorrow morning, Friday 22nd September, at the Little Girls Courtyard commencing at approx. 9am.
Hope to see you there.
