BOOK worms were out in force as lo­cal schools cel­e­brated Book Week.

Each year, many schools and public li­braries across Aus­tralia spend a week cel­e­brat­ing books and Aus­tralian au­thors and il­lus­tra­tors.

Childers State School was no ex­cep­tion.

The school held a Books on Blan­kets day.

This in­volved ev­ery­one from stu­dents to teach­ers dress­ing in their favourite py­ja­mas – some of them like an­i­mal cos­tumes – and older stu­dents spend­ing some time read­ing with the younger stu­dents.

The day high­lighted the im­por­tance of read­ing and en­cour­aged chil­dren to pick up a good book.
