It’s Book Week!

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.

Book week

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.
