Children’s Book Week

Each year across Australia, the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Book Week. During Children’s Book Week (18-24 August), it’s a take time to reflect
and celebrate excellent children’s literature written by some inspiring
Australian authors and illustrators. The theme this year is…Find your treasure.
