Common Grace is excited to be celebrating the joy and fun of Book Week 2021!
Books are a wonderful way to help open up conversations and explore complex issues, helping inform and encourage new perspectives, teaching the need to listen to other voices, spark action and build empathy and care for those who experienced injustice.
Join us as we celebrate Book Week along with children, families, educators and authors across Australia, exploring the 2021 Book Week theme of 'Old Worlds, New Worlds, Other Worlds'.
We will be sharing a special blog series exploring the wonderful way books help open up new worlds, spark big ideas, grow compassion and encourage deep conversations that can help bring about change in our world. Explore this special series below with contributions from Susy Lee, author of 'Raising Kids who Care', Alison Williams, who works in children's publishing as well as book reviews from children and young people.
We would love to hear your own children's book recommendations! To celebrate Book Week please share your recommendations of books your children love and have helped spark great conversations for change. Share with Common Grace on social media (Facebook or Instagram) by tagging us at @commongraceaus or email [email protected]. We would also love you to join the Common Grace team and get ready to show us your great Book Week costumes on Friday 27 August for our virtual dress up parade.
