Enjoy storytime around the country
THE same story, read at the same time across Australia, will captivate young readers for the 16th year during Library and Information Week throughout Fremantle and Cockburn.
Starting on May 23, with the main event at 11am on May 25, National Simultaneous Storytime aims to promote the value of reading and literacy to young people as part of the Australian Library and Information Association initiative.
Local schools and libraries will participate throughout the week, reading I Got This Hat by Jo and Kate Temple, illustrated by Jon Foye, to their young audiences.
Each year, an Australian picture book takes the limelight, with this year’s tale being a clever rhyming story about the surprisingly large world of hats.
