Get ready for CBCA Children’s Book Week 2023

Each year since 1945 the Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) has brought children and books together across Australia through Children’s Book Week. 

During this time schools and public libraries spend one week celebrating books and Australian children’s authors and illustrators with classroom activities, competitions, storytelling sessions and, of course, the popular school book parade! 

This year’s Children’s Book Week will be held between Saturday 19 August and Friday 25 August 2023. The theme for this year is ‘Read, Grow Inspire’ and the feature artist is award-winning children’s book author and illustrator, Matt Ottley.

You can also explore all the books shortlisted for the 2023 CBCA Book of the Year. The winners will be announced on 18 August at 12pm AEST.
