From the 18th to the 22nd August, children and educators at Kool Kidz on Wellington celebrated Children’s Book Week. Every year during Book Week hundreds of schools, public libraries, childcare and kindergarten services across Australia celebrate books, Australian authors and illustrators. This year’s theme for Book Week was ‘Connect to Reading’. ‘Connect to Reading’ is about enjoying the experience of exploring a story, and travelling to other worlds.
Here at Kool Kidz on Wellington educators used the theme to encourage children to share many stories together.
Educators encouraged children to bring in their favourite books to share with their peers. Both the children and educators also enjoyed dressing up as their favourite book characters. Book Week is a great time for everyone to encourage and get children excited about reading!
