Children's Book Week is held annually in August. The 2022 theme is 'Dreaming with eyes open' and will be run 20 - 26 August.
This national celebration was developed by the Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) to promote excellence in writing and publishing for young people and encourage children to develop a love of reading and books. Since 1946 CBCA has held annual Awards for Australian writers, and 2021's short list can be seen here. The titles are available to borrow from your local library.
In the City of Gosnells, Children’s Book Week features sessions with visiting children’s authors, storytellers and illustrators. Keep your eye on the What's on at the library page for event booking details.
