National Simultaneous Storytime


Join us for National Simultaneous Storytime, an annual campaign to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. 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.

National Simultaneous Storytime aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, and the fun of books!

This year we will be reading The Cow Tripped Over the Moon by Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood:

"Hey diddle diddle

You all know the riddle

A cow jumps over the moon..."

But the moon is very high in the sky. How many attemps will it take before Cow makers her famous high-flyng leap? This is a story about perserverance, training, cows smacking into meteorites, hot air balloons, and sand dunes. It's also a story about friends helping a cow in need, and a story about triumph!

Come to Where The Wild Things Are on Wednesday 24th May at 11am to join in on the fun! All ages welcome.
