The Vision


What's on @ Little Gnome?

Each year schools, libraries, book sellers and childcare centres celebrate children’s literature during the CBCA Children’s Book Week. 

This year Little Gnome will be celebrating too with some surprise
activities!
The theme of this year’s book week is “Escape to Everywhere”. Many books have been shortlistedand will be judged by the Children’s Book Council Of Australia. The winners will be announced during Book Week. 

If you would like to know more about the books shortlisted or the awards themselves please go to http://www.cbca.org.au/cbca-childrens- book-week

Little Gnome currently has many of the books shortlisted for the awards. Human Bel invites you to visit us during Book Week to experience these books and maybe take home a copy for your family.
Because, our imaginiation inspired by great writing and the beautifuilly crafted illustrations of good children’s books helps us go to places we can’t visit physically. We can also learn the beauty of
language. After all, Human Dr Jennie from Australian Catholic University, tells us that good books have a rich vocabularly that is beyond our everyday language and reading good books aloud to
children is a great way to enjoy and learn this rich vocabularly.
