NATIONAL SIMULTANEOUS STORYTIME
Alpacas with Maracas
On the 22nd of May 2019, National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) was held by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). Every year an Australian picture book is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. The national event aims to promote the value of reading and literacy by using an Australian children’s book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation through to Year 6.
