Each year, schools and public libraries across the country celebrate books and Australian authors and illustrators.
The week generally involves a parade of book characters and it’s all about highlighting the importance of reading and celebrating the joy of children's literature.
Due to a crowded calendar, Bellingen Public School’s Book Week Parade occurred a little later than usual, but as they say, better late than never, and it was still a joyful, colourful event.
The theme for 2018 was 'Find Your Treasure’.
Many thanks to Bellingen Public School’s Sandra Ruming, who laboured out of hours to send us these beautiful photographs.
