Book Week 2015

This year we are very excited to be celebrating 70 years of Children's Book Week in Australia. Every year The Children's Book Council of Australia choose a theme for Book Week. This year the theme is:

"Books light up our world."

At Freckles we dedicate time each day with the children to develop and nurture a keen interest in a variety of books to help in establishing a strong foundation and passion for reading.

What is Freckles doing to celebrate Book Week 2015?

Writing & Illustrating a Book

During Book Week, all children at Freckles will participate in writing their very own story book with their educators. Throughout the drafting and editing process we will be posting photos and snippets each day on the ChildCarers App for our families to see and enjoy. When we are finished each class will display their book in their classroom for our families to see.

Bring your favourite Story

We welcome all of the children to bring their favourite book to Freckles to share with their friends and educators.

Dress up as your favourite character

We invite the children to dress up as their favourite character/s for each day that they attend Freckles next week.

Here are some great ideas if you are looking for some dress up inspiration:

ChildCarers App

Remember to check the ChildCares App each day to see the great activities and fun times we have each day throughout book week (and each and every day here at Freckles).

We are looking forward to a fun-filled and educational book week!
