Book Week +HEA prize competition!

CBCA book week is soon!

20-26th August - Children's Book Council of Australia

One of my early childhood memories is of the book week parade and being sent to school wearing a colander on my head with flowers poked through the holes. I'm sure my mother must have felt very clever that year, but I just felt really silly! Now that I have many years of mothering under my belt, I can appreciate just how inspired that was. Do you celebrate book week in your homeschool?

Let's make some book week memories together!

  • Or some other creative activity inspired by the Book Week theme or books.
