CBCA Book Week (Australia) begins

Every year, since 1945 the Children’s Book Council of Australia has celebrated the joy and importance of reading with a week dedicated to books. Schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, and illustrators unite with children to share their passion for reading. Events are held around the country, including book parades, book displays and sales in school and libraries. The CBCA also hold a book of the year awards. Each year a new theme is adopted, in 2022 the theme is ‘Dreaming with eyes open…’.
