Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds – Book Week 2021.

21st -27th August 2021

We may often let our minds wonder to consider the experiences of times before us, possibilities of the future, even questioning worlds that could exist outside of our own.

Each year, Book Week is celebrated throughout schools and public libraries across Australia. The week sets out to highlight incredible Australian authors and illustrators, bringing light to the magic that is reading stories.

This year, the Children’s Book Council Australia (CBCA) have selected the theme of ‘Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds’. Aiming to spark curiosity, this theme feeds the imaginations of young readers. Each related to this idea, 36 books have been nominated as a collection of high quality Children’s books.

The Pyjama Foundation are participating in the promotion of Book Week 2021 by providing free downloadable resources . We believe the power of reading to children is strong enough to change their life – and EVERY child deserves this.

Let’s Get Started!

With Book Week 2021 on the horizon, we have the perfect activities to get your kiddos excited and ignite their marvellous creative minds.

Created for every learner, our resources are designed spark the interest in Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds. Specifically, you can find drawing boards and writing prompts to cater to diverse interests and abilities. Therefore, your child can make it their own by allowing their imagination to drive the story that they wish to tell!

For the big kids!

Last Book Week, our entire office dressed up as characters from some of our favourite stories. We created some Book Week themed games which we all played while dressed up.

We decided to make them downloadable for all to play – at school, at the office, or at a Pyjama Angel visit! These are terrific printable resources to help you and your child celebrate Book Week.

Play ‘Book Week Bingo’ with a group, ‘Emoji Pictionary’ and ‘Name That Character’. Click the link below to download.

We are so excited to see their creativity fill the pages!
