Children’s Book Week

Australia! Story Country

Children’s Book Week
Australia! Story Country
Saturday 20 August – Friday 26 August

Each year, across Australia, The CBCA brings children and books together celebrating Children’s Book Week. During this time Schools, Libraries, Booksellers, Authors, Illustrators and children celebrate Australian Children's Literature.

Generally,  the Book of the Year winner's announcement is always the third Friday in August, and Children's Book Week commences the following day and runs from Saturday to Sunday.
