Booking in for a fun week of reading

BOOK worms were out in force as local schools celebrated Book Week.

Each year, many schools and public libraries across Australia spend a week celebrating books and Australian authors and illustrators.

Childers State School was no exception.

The school held a Books on Blankets day.

This involved everyone from students to teachers dressing in their favourite pyjamas - some of them like animal costumes - and older students spending some time reading with the younger students.

The day highlighted the importance of reading and encouraged children to pick up a good book.
