August is our favourite month at Alphabet Soup. August means Children’s Book Week in Australia and that means celebrations of authors, illustrators and children’s books! (And often a Book Week dress-up parade — which our editor really adores.)

Meanwhile, our Top Reads team has been reading as if reading is a new Olympic event — so it’s time for some book recommendations. Go team!

You’ll find a recommended list from our Top Reads Team on the last day of every month (February to November). If you missed last month’s, don’t forget to check out the July Top Reads.
