En­joy sto­ry­time around the coun­try

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

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.
