Book Week is a great opportunity to celebrate books. The theme for this year is Curious Creatures, Wild Minds. This theme begs the question, who are the curious creatures? Many children’s books have curious creatures. Immediately Maurice Sendak’s ‘Where the Wild Things Are!’ comes to mind. Followed by Dr Suess’ characters such as the ‘Cat in the Hat’ and ‘The Lorax’, and more recently Anna Walker’s ‘Mr Huff’. Creatures that are unknown are definitely a curiosity. When we investigate the creatures by exploring books to learn more about them, who are the curious creatures then? We are!
Book Week, this year, will be celebrated on Friday 30th October. Students will be encouraged to dress up as a curious creature or a character from a book.
