Art teacher Lyn Rogers said there were lots of good costumes this year, including pirates, witches, Where’s Wally, the Cat in the Hat and Raggedy Ann.
‘‘We want to promote literature and reading with children,’’ Ms Rogers said.
‘‘They’re always walking past the library wanting to know what to read.’’
The children participated in different activities such as painting dinosaurs, making little chook pens, decorating boxes to put treasure in and making a tree house.
Year 4 student Maddy Franklin, 10, was dressed up as Clementine Rose from the Clementine Rose book series by Jacqueline Harvey.
Maddy said she had enjoyed doing Book Week activities and dressing up as her favourite character.
‘‘With books you can read and do activities and learn about the books,’’ she said.
Fellow Year 4 student Tahlea Woollard said the parade and activities had been good this year.
‘‘You can show everyone your favourite character from a book,’’ she said.
