This is the first year in many that I have not been involved with National Simultaneous Storytime – this is due to the fact that I am now at a University Library and so there isn’t really a need for it. I have to say that I certainly missed it this morning 🙂
According to the ALIA website, in 2013 over 430,000 children at over 2,500 events participated in National Simultaneous Storytime with guest storytellers from all walks of life, ranging from local librarians and teachers, right through to the then Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard. You can check out the Storify from last years event for photos from around Australia.
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.
