This Wednesday is the National Simultaneous Storytime. 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 20th 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. This year the chosen text is ‘Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas.’
We are very lucky to have Mr Stephens read it for us, we will also post it on the school’s Facebook page for you to follow along on Wednesday, 27th May.
