Children’s Book Council of Australia: Book Week!
 

Come visit the Discovery Space for a range of special programs exploring this years theme of Read, Grow, Inspire! 

 

Monday 21 August to Friday 25 August

Storytime: 11am and 12pm  
Join us as this week we read a range of quality literature, including the CBCA 2023 Shortlisted Picture Book of the Year, ‘Our Dreaming’! Written by award-winning storytellers, Gunai woman Kirli Saunders and Bigambul man Dub Leffler, this text explores a deep love and respect for Country and all her spirits … past, present and beyond.


creARTivity: 9:30am to 11:30am
Inspired by the CBCA 2023 Shortlisted Picture Book of the Year, ‘Our Dreaming’ and with Country as your inspiration, create an artwork that uses patterns found in nature; the marks beetles make crawling through the sand, patterns in a beehive, in birds’ plumage, the shadows of the leaves lay upon the land, and the patterns within the layers of soil beneath the feet of the echidnas as they walk.

Goodjagah, little one, walk with me …
I want to tell you our Dreaming
as the Elders told it to me.’


Loose Parts Play in The Pod: All Day!

Venture into The Pod to explore and respond to digital content inspired by the work of CBCA Book Week feature artist Matt Ottley! Can you create your own perfect environment for reading, using the loose parts in The Pod?


The Great Discovery Space Book Week Quest: All Day!
To celebrate Book Week, embark on a special quest through the Discovery Space! Seek out and locate the three Discovery Space book nooks (now with NEW book boxes created by children in creARTivity on their visit to the Discovery Space!)
