National Simultaneous Storytime - 25th May

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 22nd 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.

By facilitating NSS we aim to:

  • promote the value of reading and literacy,

  • promote the value and fun of books,

  • promote an Australian writer and publisher,

  • promote storytime activities in libraries and communities around the country,

  • and provide opportunities to involve parents, grandparents, the media and others to participate in and enjoy the occasion.

This year the chosen book is Family Tree by Josh Pike. CtK students will have the opportunity to participate in drama, music, art & craft and shared reading.
