ALIA National Simultaneous Storytime 2018

May 23 at 11am,

Once again we will be participating in the National Simultaneous Storytime, where every year a picture book is read simultaneously across Australia.

The ALIS National Simultaneous Storytime is on Wednesday the 23rd of May 2018, with Tony Wilson and Laura Wood’s “HICKORY DICKORY DASH”.
Come in store at 11am for a book reading and craft activity recreating the Hickory, Dickory Clock.

About National Simultaneous Storytime:

National Simultaneous Storytime is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. 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. Scholastic is proud to support ALIA and this wonderful initiative, which celebrates reading and children’s literacy.

This event provides an opportunity to involve parents, grandparents, the media and others to participate in and enjoy National Simultaneous Storytime in your home!

 4 June: My Family and other animals By Gerald Durrell

Benefits of joining a Book Club: To expose yourself to some books that you may never have thought to try. I have read some books that I would never have picked off the shelf but loved and learned so much from. \

My reading interests expanded 100 fold after joining a book club and taking on new authors, styles and genres. I didn’t know there were so many interesting books and before the book clubs, The books you read will never be the same or limited after you’ve joined a book club.
