More magic in new story time tales

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.
