Book Week is the longest running children’s festival in Australia, celebrating its 68th birthday in 2013.
In recognition of the 2013 Book Week theme ‘reading across the universe’, MAMA celebrates the work of our project partners in Zambia, Afghanistan, Timor Leste, Kiribati and Papua New Guinea in bringing books to young children – empowering them to read, to excel.
Help MAMA continue to give children in need the gift and joy of reading. Make your mark!
