Children’s Week Book Project

13 July 2020 to 31 August 2020 Meerilinga Young Children's Foundation West Leederville, 6007

The Children’s Week Book Project encourages all WA children aged 0-12 years to collaborate and connect with other children from across the state. An opportunity for participants of all backgrounds and abilities to be represented in a book made for children, by children.

The Children’s Week Book Project investigates the Rights of Children and what this looks like to them. With the added opportunity of becoming a published Author/Illustrator, it’s a perfect rainy day activity or pre-planned afternoon class!

Supported by WA Children’s Book Author & Illustrator, Briony Stewart, elements selected from multiple children’s entries from each region will be crafted together into one cohesive story. Then compiled into three books representing the age groups 0-4, 5-8 & 9-12 years, to be published, printed and distributed throughout the state.

To enter:

  1. Head to the Children’s Week WA Book Project Page
  2. Download the Story Pack for your Region and Age Group
  3. Complete the Entry Form and submit your work by Midnight, 31st August 2020
  4. Join us on Facebook Live on Wednesday 28th October, from 10am to see if you have been featured in the books!


Entries open 13 July – 31 August 2020. All selected entries will be listed as co-author/illustrators and sent a FREE copy of their Children’s Book! 🤩 Please make sure that all of our children and centres are represented in this project. Imagination and creativity through storytelling allows children to make sense of their world and is integral to a child’s development and wellbeing.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please share throughout your networks with whoever you think would like to get involved. We can’t wait to see what the children create!

The 2020 Children’s Week Book Project is proudly supported by LotteryWest and Healthway promoting the Go for 2 & 5 message.
