Book Week on parade
THE contents of many dress-up boxes across the Tweed were raided and bookshelves scoured for ideas. Yes folks, it was Book Week, the longest running children’s festival in Australia.
Book Week is a chance to dress up as your favourite book character (or for some, just to dress up) and parade around school.
This year’s theme was Book Safari. A lot of Tweed youngsters (and teachers) chose jungle themes for their costumes, although there was still the usual flotsam of fairies and stacks of super heroes, too.
Kids at Kingscliff Public School, which holds a book fair in conjunction with its Book Week Parade, came dressed as sports people, dancers, Batman, Harry Potter, Max from Where the Wild Things Are, and Lola from the Lauren Child series Charlie and Lola.
Like many local schools, Kingscliff had some special visitors – pre-school tiny tots who were quick to join in the fun!
