For the last week schools all around Australia have been celebrating Book Week with their annual Book Parade. Social media feeds have been filled with wonderful shots of kids dressed up as their favourite book characters. Did your kidlet dress up?
Coinciding with this celebration is the announcement of The Children’s Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Awards 2014. We covered the shortlist selection back in April and were super excited to spot some of our favourites on the Winners List. We have sourced a great price on each book for you so adding it to your book shelf will be no problem at all.
