The countdown has begun!

Book Week is just a little over one week away. It begins with the announcement in seven days time of the winners in each of the shortlist categories. Then on Monday the fun begins. Book Fair, a visiting author, movie and popcorn for one lucky class and of course the highlight of the week would have to be the book parade. I’m getting busy today making my costume.

Thank you Leigh Hobbs and Mr Chicken for providing the inspiration for my Book Week costume this year. As we know Mr Chicken has many adventures and escapes to many exotic locations. You’ll just have to wait until the parade to see where I’ve decided to escape to.

Escape to Everywhere

It’s almost that time of year again! Yes we are counting down to Book week 2017 and the theme this year is ‘Escape to Everywhere.’

I’m starting to think about my costume for our book parade, wondering what great books will be available at our book fair and also getting SUPER EXCITED because local author Deborah Kelly is visiting during book week to share important aspects of her craft and read some of her books. Most of all though I’m looking forward to sharing some of the shortlisted books with you, the super star students of Tenambit. After all book week is a celebration of Australia’s best authors, illustrators and books.

What do you enjoy most about book week?
