This is Children's book week in Queensland - maybe all over Australia- I am not sure about that. Every year Mackay City Council Library Services holds a fantastic parade in conjunction with the local Walkerston State School and the St. John's Catholic Primary school. As My grandchildren attend the State School, of course I have to go to watch. The theme this year was supposed to be "Your favourite story book character", but there were lots of TV and film characters. Perhaps they don't read much at home!
