Every year since 1945, schools, public libraries and children across Australia have celebrated their favourite books, Australian children’s authors, and illustrators during Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Book Week.
This year’s theme for CBCA Book Week is ‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds’. Children are invited to celebrate through activities, dressing up, competitions and storytelling.
The CBCA Book Week Book of the Year winners for 2021 were announced on Friday 20 August, and we are thrilled to congratulate Tasmanian author Kate Gordon! Her book ‘Aster’s good, right things’ won the Younger Readers category for 2021.
