Book Week costumes
Book Week is a fantastic time in New Zealand schools. Book Week is all about celebrating books and reading, and schools often include dress up days where students and teachers come in costume as their favourite book characters.
When is Book Week 2020?
Book Week in New Zealand celebrates authors and illustrators of books that have had a great academic impact on children and young adults. Every year New Zealand has held a festival celebrating New Zealand authors and their books. The entire community comes together to honour New Zealand authors and illustrators with a nationwide Book Week. Children in schools learn about these New Zealand authors and illustrators and are introduced to their books in hopes of instilling the importance of reading.
