National Simultaneous Storytime

  • Start: 23/05/2018 11:00 AM
  • End:23/05/2018 12:00 PM

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator, is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. Now in its 18th successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.
The book this year is “Hickory Dickory Dash” written by Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood. Our classrooms will be busy reading this book at around 11am today.
