Children's Book Week

The CBCA Children's Book Week has had a slogan since 1945, but until 1987 each Branches created their own posters to illustrate the themes and promote events.

However, since 1987 there has been a national theme chosen by the CBCA National Council/Board. Traditionally, the artwork is developed by the winner of the previous year's Picture Book of the Year Illustrator.

Dates for CBCA Book of the Year announcements in 2018:

  • Notables announcement:              27 February
  • Short List announcement:             27 March
  • Book of the Year announcement:   17 August

This year's CBCA Children's Book Week theme is… Find Your Treasure!
