The 2019 Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Book Week theme is ‘Reading is my Secret Power’.
So let me get you sorted for Book Week in August!

We’ve even got your costume ideas sorted. Did you notice that 13 of the 36 books on the CBCA shortlist 2019 had birds on their cover? And 6 of those were about birds, or had birds as characters. Even the poster for CBCA Book Week has a bird on it! Sooooooo… this Book Week why not go with it?
