Each year in August children’s book authors and illustrators are celebrated at schools and childcares around Australia in an event called Book Week.
The 2021 Book Week theme is “Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds” and is scheduled for the week of August 21st -27th.
Book Week is run by The Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA), a not-for-profit organisation with an aim to encourage a love of books by connecting our children to the magic of stories through fun Book Week activities and celebrating Australian authors and illustrators. Activities such as dressing up as the book characters, storytelling and fun creative activities occur throughout the week and culminate in a school-wide parade of costumes.
For busy parents, the task of coming up with a book character costume can be stressful and daunting. This is where we come in to help and make this year’s Book Week easy!
Saving you the time and hassle of racing to the shops to come up with a costume, Little Koala Book Club delivers storybook & dress-up boxes straight to your door. Each box is lovingly curated and includes a storybook, character costume and themed craft activity to enjoy at home together which is sure to inspire a love of reading books, creative storytelling, imagination and also helps make storytime SUPER fun for your little one.
