We are really excited to be launching a new weekly Sunday Arts section today. Each Sunday we will be bringing you reviews on the latest books, music and more.
It seems appropriate to be launching our new section today being Book Week in Australia (August 22nd – 28th). Book Week is the
longest running children’s festival in Australia, celebrating its 64th
birthday in 2009.
Each year, many schools and public libraries from all over Australia
spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators.
Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians develop
activities, offer competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to
highlight the importance of reading. The theme in 2009 is Book Safari.
We hope you enjoy our new section and feel free to suggest your children’s favourite books, CDs and DVDs so we can share these with all our readers.
