From 6 to 17 October it's time for Kinderboekenweek (Children's Book Week)! All over the country, all kinds of fun activities, events and promotions are organized for ten days to celebrate the children's book.
This year's theme is 'become what you want'. So the focus is on children's books about professions. Do you dream of a profession as a cook, hairdresser or police officer? Or do you see a career as an influencer, singer or writer? No matter how old you are, you can always dream about the future!
On the Donner website you will find all Children's Book Week events and children's book tips about professions. Children's books are ideal to start thinking about what you want to do when you grow up.
Watch the fun teaser of Children's Book Week 2021 below.
This year's Children's Book Week Gift is written by Bette Westera and is called 'Tiril en de toverdrank'. For more than 20 years she has been writing about the most diverse subjects and she has made and translated picture books, poetry collections and non-fiction for young people.
You get the Children's Book Week Gift for free with a purchase of €12.50 worth of children's books.
In addition, this year there is also a Picture Book of the Children's Book Week. Illustrator Mark Janssen was given the honor of drawing it and made the book 'Dromer'. This one is for sale for €7.25 (while supplies last).
