Children's Book Week
Children’s Book Week is an annual celebration of reading for pleasure for children that has been running for over 80 years.
Children’s Book Week 2013 took place from 7-11 October. Schools, libraries and other venues all over the UK held events and activities throughout the week aimed at encouraging children to enjoy reading for pleasure, explore libraries and bookshops, and even start writing themselves.
Each year, Booktrust makes available a range of resources to teachers and librarians, including fun activity ideas and book recommendations to help schools and libraries to plan their own celebrations of reading for pleasure - whether during Children's Book Week itself or at other times of the year.
Primary and secondary schools, booksellers, libraries and early years settings can download this year’s Children’s Book Week resources which include lesson plans, activities and guidance on how to engage with your community, all to help you bring children’s books to life . You can also download the brand new 2013 Booktrust Best Book Guide for reviews of some of our favourite children's books from the last year, which are perfect for reading and sharing during Children's Book Week.
