Book Week

Brace yourselves, Mums & Dads of Australia - it's BOOK WEEK!  Offically Aug 17-23 in 2024, but many schools have minds of their own... SO:  fish that note from the bottom of their bag then...


The theme for 2024 is "Reading is Magic" - which pretty much gives you carte blanche to be anything from a myriad of books that transport young minds into the world of imagination.   We've got fast shipping Australia-wide & if you're Sydney-based, look for the "Click & Collect" logo inside the product listings - this means you can order that product online & collect from our Crows Nest, Sydney store if you're in a hurry.

So what's Book Week all about then?

Every year since 1945, the Childrens Book Council of Australia (CBCA) has brought children & books together to foster a love of reading through the week long celebration of Book Week.  For teachers, librarians, children & parents it's a full week of colourful displays, development activities, competitions, story-telling & yes - dressing up as your favourite book character!  

Book Week is the second busiest time of year for costume shops (behind Halloween).  In 2024, Book week is August 17-23 with the theme of "Reading is Magic".
