Book Week is all about celebrating books and connecting people through stories.
Join us for the 1st ever Virtual Book Week celebrations from 27 to 30 April! There are a lot of activities that will help your child develop a love of books, storytelling and reading.
We encourage you to find time every day to drop what you are doing and pick up a book, instead! Take a photo of you reading and send it to us.
Use your creativity and bring books to life by recreating your favourite book covers. Here are a few samples to get the party started!
Take a photo of your favourite book cover vs your creation and send it to us.
Make your passion for reading visual with some fun reading themed door decorations! Take a photo of your creation and send it to us.
Don’t know where to start?
Choose your favourite book and design a cover for one of the doors in your house. Or go for designs inspired by the theme of our Book Week “Connected Through Books”.
Have you ever wanted to create a hideaway spot at home? Now's your chance! The whole family is invited to build a fort at home and read together. Take some photos of you reading together and send them to us.
