Children's Book Week 2020
Celebrate Children's Book Week 2020 with us!

Each year since 1945 the CBCA has brought children and books together across Australia through CBCA Book Week. During this time schools and public libraries spend one glorious week celebrating books and Australian children's authors and illustrators. In 2020, CBCA Book Week will be held in mid October with the theme ‘Curious Creatures, Wild Minds’.

Colouring Posters

Using Gwyn Perkins' quirky and colourful 2020 CBCA Book Week theme artwork, CBCA created a free colouring poster to download, print and colour. You'll notice that there are a few of Gwyn's 'Curious Creatures' missing from the poster. This is to allow children to add their own.
