Across the Story Bridge – Book Week 2010

Travel across the story bridge this week as Australia celebrates CBCA Book Week in 2010. This year, the winner of the Older Readers Book of the Year is Jarvis 24 by David Metzenthen, one of the new titles on order for our refurbished Library.  Check out a review of the novel at Fiction Focus and his other titles on display in our temporary Library (K3). You may also be interested in the blog Between the Lines, Penguin Australia’s dedicated space for young adult readers, writers and books.

Early Childhood students may be interested in the book rap on Bear & Chook by the Sea, the Early Childhood Book of the Year. You’ll find a link on the rap to a reading of the story by the author, Lisa Shanahan, and illustrator, Emma Quay.
