It is that time of the year again! In my country it is Kinderboekenweek (Children’s Book Week)! 11-12 days (like I said last year, not really a week, right?) of books, books, authors, and fun and we celebrate Children’s Books! This year the theme of the week is En Toen?, which translates to And Then? and is all about going back in time, to the past, ancient history. And BOY I am HYPED! I love reading history books (either fiction or non-fiction), and as I kid I devoured plenty of Horrible Histories and other books. Anything about history is a big LOVE to me even know I am not a kid.
And like with all the Kinderboekenweek there is a gift book that you can get at your book store when you buy 10 euro worth of books (which is easily reached with buying just one book given the prices of books in my country), this year that book is by Arend van Dam which is called: De diamant van Banjarmasin. There is also a picture book specially made for this week, this year that is Tweeling! by Mylo Freeman.
Plus, I got something amazing for you all! The person who made last years metro-line made something new, a timeline very fitting for this year’s theme! You can find a PDF file here should you want this image for yourself/your kids/other people. And click on the image below to get a bigger version!
If you want more information on the week you can go here for the site.
As this week continues I will be adding to the list, so be sure to keep checking this post to see what I read.
Now for what I want/would like to read this week or what I already read in anticipation of the week. This because kerntitels/core titles aren’t easy to find around this week + I am not visiting Libraries as often as I used to do due to Corona. So I prepared ahead. 🙂
EDIT 9-10: The week is almost finished and I read my last book for this week! I have read 10 books. I really had fun with the theme of this year’s Kinderboekenweek and I cannot wait until next year and see what the theme is then.
