This week is the Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Book Week.
Book Week is held every year and this year it is from August 20th – 26th.
During Book Week many schools and public libraries celebrate fantastic books, authors and illustrators.
In 2KM and 2KJ we love reading so we are excited to be a part of Book Week.
This year the theme of Book Week is One World, Many Stories.
In Grade Two, we are celebrating Book Week by having a Blogging Book Day.
We are passing around some of the short listed books in the Picture Book of the Year awards.
Each class is writing a blog post about one of the books and the other classes will be commenting.
