More magic in new story time tales
STORY time was made extra special last week with 30 new books.
Speech Pathology Australia has donated copies of the books nominated for its 2012 Book of the Year Awards to the Gayndah library.
Story time co-ordinator Lisa Baker said when Speech Pathology Australia found out about the volunteer-run story time, “the national office kindly donated 30 of the nominated books to add to our library’s collection”.
She said the donation was made in support of the group’s work in early lit- eracy, rhyme and rhythm.
Last Friday was the final story time of the year and children enjoyed Christmas-themed books. The group also sang nursery rhymes, including the Reindeer Pokey and I’m a Little Santa.
Story time has been a favourite event for young families this year with regular song and dance, and dress up days.
The group will return next year on February 1, at 10.30am.
