Curious Creatures, Wild Minds. October 17 – 23
Since 1945 The Children’s Book Council of Australia has been bringing children and books together across the country for one big, fun week of celebration. Every library and school across Australia have dress up days, read books and enjoy the wonderful world of children’s literature!
In 1946 the CBCA established an annual book award to promote children's books of high literary and artistic quality. These awards are now the most influential and highly respected in Australia.
