Children’s Book Council of Australia (CBCA) Children’s Book of the Year awards were presented last month and are the oldest and most respected awards for children’s literature in Australia.
ACU’s Professor Margot Hillel OAM is CBCA Chair and presided over the awards ceremony in Swanton Hall at the Melbourne Town Hall.
The event was praised as a major success.
"The event was attended by authors, illustrators and publishers from all over Australia as well as others interested in literature for young people," Professor Hillel said.
"Children's literature is important as it helps develop children's cognitive and literacy skills. It's never too early to start reading to your child!
"Young adult literature - there is an older readers category on the Book of the Year awards - gives young people the chance to read about people like themselves often facing the same challengers.
"And lastly, children's literature is good for the economy. It was the big growth area in publishing in Australia last year."
