2023 Children’s Book Week
Each year in August since 1945, the Children’s Book Council of Australia has brought children and books together across Australia through Children’s Book Week. During this time schools and public libraries celebrate books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators. This year’s theme is Read, Grow, Inspire.
This year, there were 120 new Notable Australian Books chosen for judging from the categories of books for Older Readers, Younger Readers, Picture Books, Early Childhood and Non-Fiction. Already there have been 30 of these titles shortlisted with the winners in each category to be announced on Friday 18 August. We have a selection of these titles available for viewing in our School Library so come by next week and see which were the winning titles.
