KIDS Book of the Year Event
KIDS BOOK OF THE YEAR EVENT 2017
The very first Kids event to celebrate the CBCA Book of the Year Awards was a great success. The auditorium of the NSW Teachers’ Federation was buzzing with excitement generated from so many students eagerly waiting to hear from our guest creators – WAI CHIM and DALE NEWMAN.
WAI CHIM spoke about her passion for words and love of reading which inspired her to write. It was fascinating to hear the story behind her stories.
All were amazed at the talented artistry shown by DALE NEWMAN and budding illustrators learnt lots of tips. It sure takes a long time and a lot of skill to create a graphic novel!
Congratulations to all the student reviewers! YOU ROCK! I am sure that many students will seek out one of the titles or maybe even more, to get their hands on and to start reading. Thank you to:
Older Readers category: Vlad. Lara, Oscar, Vicky, Stephanie and Julie
Younger Readers category: Katya, Amy, Skye, Saxon, Riddhi and Olivia
A school media team enabled us to record parts of the program.
Thanks team Marcus, Finley, and Mia.
THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD AGAIN IN 2018 on the day the winners are announced.
COME AND CELEBRATE BOOK WEEK ON FRIDAY 17 AUGUST 2018. More details to come.
