Children’s Book Week

2023 CBCA Book of the Year Awards

The Children’s Book Council of Australia has announced its Book of the Year Awards. Congratulations to all the Winners, Authors, Illustrators and Publishers!

This year the theme for the CBCA Book Week is READ, GROW, INSPIRE.  Matt Ottley is the artist for 2023.

A list of all winners including honours books can be found here.  You can watch the special awards announcement on the CBCA YouTube channel.  Further information about Book of the Year including all notable and shortlisted books can be found on the CBCA website. 

The Library has a lovely display of the 2023 CBCA books but be quick as they’re literally walking out the door this year! All titles are available for loan and can be found in the Curriculum Collection on level 4 of R Block, Kelvin Grove Library.

We also have a Children’s Literature Library Subject Guide where you can read more about the books and follow the links to QUT Library’s online and print copies.


Enjoy Children’s Book Week and happy reading!
