KidStyleFile Loves Books : The Children’s Book Council Book of the Year Awards 2016
News + Inspiration

If your child is in primary school there’s no escaping Book Week and the Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards. I know many of you have been busy pulling together the perfect costumes. If you’re like me, perhaps last minute costumes (thanks to Dina for her 10 last minute costume roundup).

Setting aside the anxiety of costume creation, the week provides an opportunity to celebrate Australian children’s authors and illustrators across a number of categories. This year’s Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards is an eclectic mix of wonderful books. Any one of them will delight and provide a platform of discussion at your place.

This 2016 winner’s are within amazing company. I always track back when looking for ideas for gifts. Check out the The Children’s Book Council Book of the Year Awards 2015 and The Children’s Book Council Book of the Year Awards 2014 if you would like to fill your bookshelf with even more winners.
