3B becomes CURIOUS about Book Week!

This week is Book Week and we came to school excited to learn more about it. We came up with some questions about Book Week that we wanted to find the answers to.

Here are the questions and our answers!

  • Why do we have Book Week?

We have Book Week to share our favourite books, discuss our favourite characters and inspire others to read more books.

 

  • Why do we have a theme

We have a theme because  the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) has been having a National one since 1987.

 

  • What is this year’s theme?

This year’s theme is ‘Escape to Everywhere’

 

  • When is Book Week each year?

Book Week falls in August each year. This year it started on Saturday 19th of August and ends on Saturday 26th of August. Next year it will be from the 17th to the 24th of August.
