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.
Aubin Grove’s celebration of Book Week occurs in Week 10, Term 3 and culminates in our Book Week Parade on the last Friday of term (further details to follow).
In room 39 we are looking at the book ‘Go Home Cheeky Animals.’ Written by Johanna Bell and Dion Beasley.
“At Canteen Creek where we live, there are cheeky dogs everywhere. But when the cheeky goats, donkeys, buffaloes and camels make mischief in the camp, the dogs just lie there – until those pesky animals really go too far. Then the cheeky camp dogs roar into action!”
The students can dress up as any of the following:
-Cheeky dog -Cheeky donkey
-Cheeky goat -Cheeky buffalo
-Cheeky horse -Cheeky camel -Fat uncle -Aunty
-Policeofficer -A dad
-A sister -A grandpa
