Book Week

‘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. During this time you will often see Children’s Book Character Parades and talented librarians creating amazing displays.’  -The Children’s Book Council of Australia

This years theme was:  Australia! Story Country

In preparation for book week, we read a series of excellent books that were nominated for Children’s Book of the Year. At Barwon Heads Primary the favourite book in the early childhood category (as voted by students and staff ) was Piranhas Don’t Eat Bananas by Aaron Blabey.


The CBCA 2016 Winner for Early Childhood was Mr Huff by Anna Walker.


The students all participated in the annual BHPS book week parade where we dressed as some of our favourite book characters. Here are some pictures from the day.

What was your favourite costume at the parade?

  1. Dear Miss Campbell & 1C

    I am in Japan now.
    I do a dance in PE class and outside we did relay practice.
    I went to library in Japanese school. I borrowed English books.
