Kids' Corner


Watch this space for the exciting new opportunities for children to delight in the joy of reading.   

There will be online activities, book news and reviews, author and illustrator interviews, book trailers, plus contributions from our readers.        

It's FUN to READ!


You are invited to create an original character mascot for "Kids' Corner", who will appear regularly and introduce the activities. Let your ideas run wild! Will your character be an Australian cartoon animal, or a creature of your imagination?

There will be a prize for the winner: a prize pack of three age-appropriate books, plus the honour of having your mascot design inhabit "Kids' Corner" throughout 2017.

Closing date is the last day of Term 1, Friday 7th April, 2017. 

Please send your medium-resolution jpeg as an attachment to an email here to the CBCA NSW Branch office.
