Children's Book Week is run by the the Children's Book Council of Australia. Each year in August, schools and libraries spend a week celebrating books, Australian authors and illustrators.
The students in Prep, Year 1 and two celebrated Book Week dressed up as a favourite character in a big parade. This year is the last parade for Jonah as he starts Year 3 after Christmas. Next year Lily will be in Prep and gets to participate in the Book Week - this year she was happy to get dressed up too!
Master Jonah as a pirate!

Love her blue and yellow with a touch of green and red Pippi outfit.
After the Book Week Parade, we headed home... ☺
