Yes, it is already AUGUST!
Can you believe how quickly it has come? Me neither, but Book Week is just a couple of weeks away!
This year the week is from Saturday, 22nd August until Friday, 28th August. What makes this year special is that The Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) is celebrating 70 years! I know I always looked forward to Book Week when I was in school and while I haven’t seen the library transformations like when I was a kid I am sure there are librarians and library assistants working hard to ensure they create an super-engaging environment for the students!
I have so far blogged about 6 of the nominated books – it seemed like more – but I have pinned more on my Pinterest account (Scary Night activities are my latest on there). I am unsure how many more activity blogs I will be able to write. There are a couple of fiction books I have had a lot of trouble tracking down and other books (especially for older readers) have limited “to go” activities on the Internet. I will however endeavour to add more!
In the meanwhile, I would like to offer something for FREE. I have available three sets of bunting you might like to display in your library or classroom to celebrate this year’s theme of “Books Light Up Our World”. I would appreciate if you could say “Thanks” by leaving some feedback.
Here are some samples of the three sets…Click any one to download from TPT.
