CBCA Children's Book Week

Each year across Australia, the CBCA brings children and books together celebrating CBCA Children’s Book Week. During this time schools, libraries, booksellers, authors, illustrators and children celebrate Australian children's literature and you will often see children's book character parades and talented librarians creating amazing displays. 

Generally, the CBCA Book of the Year winner's announcement is the third Friday in August, and CBCA Children's Book Week commences the following day.
