Book Week 2024: Reading is Magic

The Children’s Book Council of Australia has announced the 2024 Children’s Book Week theme is Reading is Magic. The theme celebrates reading stories and their amazing power to transport minds.

“We are encouraging kids to be curious about the wonders in our world. It is a positive and affirming message for our young people,” shares the Children’s Book Council of Australia.

“The magic of reading also lies in its power of enticement; a good story provokes conversations. Talking about the stories with others connects the reader with other readers. Wrapped around all of this are the ‘tricks’ and skills of our amazing writers and illustrators, as they use all their powers of language and illustration to engage the reader in this world they are building.”
