Book Week – Top 10 Renaissance Book Titles

By: Jovana Cupac


Another year, another exciting book week! Book Week run by The Children’s Book Council of Australia, is a week where schools across Australia celebrate books and Australian authors and illustrators. Educators across Australia create colourful displaces, dress up, run competitions, activities and give students a fun and engaging occasion to express their love for reading.

Reading plays an important part in our students lives. Reading is fun and engaging while improving writing, speaking, and cognitive skills. Book week has been a great success in celebrating how important reading really is.
