Is your child’s school celebrating Book Week? We’ve taken the stress out of costume planning for you with our super easy, time-saving dress up ideas!
CBCA Book Week is held in August every year and we believe this is truly a special time. The celebration of Australian children's books sends a powerful message; reading is vitally important and books are worthy of being cherished. Anything we can do to help light the reading spark within every child should be celebrated.
By dressing up as their favourite bookish character, children are given the time to truly connect with books and to associate reading with fun. The power of choice plays an important role in costume selection as well. Children are more likely to connect with a book that they have chosen for themselves, so allowing your child to select a character idea for themselves further strengthens their bond with this book.
