Australia’s most influential children’s literary awards event, the CBCA Children’s Book of the Year Awards, is almost here.
The CBCA is delighted to announce a partnership with Woolworths to celebrate CBCA Children’s Book Week 2017.
Do you remember dressing up as a favourite character for Book Week parades in Primary School? How about curling up at bedtime with a book and being transported to a world of fantastical creatures or larger-than-life characters? Remember those precious moments spent sharing the joy of a beautiful picture book with your children or grandchildren?
Established in 1945, the Children's Book Council of Australia (CBCA) is a not-for-profit, volunteer run organisation which aims to engage the community with literature for young Australians.
The CBCA presents annual awards to books of literary merit, for outstanding contribution to Australian children's literature.
In 2015, the CBCA celebrated 70 years of enjoying and promoting the best of Australian literature for children and young people.
