Here are some photo highlights of my Book Week 2015

My Book of the Year 2015 – Short List

Every year I read some amazing books. Some I just knew were going to be brilliant, while others were incredible surprises. At the end of this year, I’m going to announce my favourite book.

Book Week 2015Book Week 2015: Books Light Up Our World

This year Book Week in Australia runs from the 22 of August to the 28 of August 2015. Celebrating its 70th anniversary, Book Week is an opportunity for school and public libraries to join in celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators. It is a fun time of dressing up, creating beautiful displays, participating in activities, and of course, reading. This year’s theme, Books Light Up Our World, makes use of archived artwork originally from the 2005 Book Week. The range of official merchandise can be found on the Children’s Book Council of Australia website here. As part of the Book Week celebrations, Australia’s Book of the Year is announced from among the Short Listed titles, which you can find here.

Throughout the time leading to Book Week 2015 I will be posting a range of display ideas and reviews on the Short List titles.

Other useful resources include Mrs Mac’s Library, which has links to teaching notes, author interviews and videos, and The Book Chook, which has plenty of activity ideas and inspiration for celebrating Book Week.
