We love any reason to read more books, and this week it’s Children’s Book Week!
The Children’s Book Council of Australia’s theme in 2013 is ‘Read across the universe’.
Our book of choice is one that delves into the underwater universe – going where no family has gone before – The Deep: Here Be Dragons.
Coincidentally, comiXology is digitally releasing The Deep: Here Be Dragons issue #2, this week.
“Each year, many schools and public libraries from all over Australia spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators. Classroom teachers, teacher librarians and public librarians develop activities, offer competitions and tell stories relating to a theme to highlight the importance of reading.” – http://cbca.org.au/bookweek.htm
The Deep: Here Be Dragons issue #1 is currently available from comiXology – or if you’d rather get your hands on the hardcopy we can express-post one to you (if you live in Australia) via our online shop for this week’s enjoyment.
