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 Australians is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, homes and children’s facilities all over the world. 

Now in its 22nd successful year, it is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children’s book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.

This year’s book is Family Tree, written by Josh Pyke and Illustrated by Ronojoy Ghosh and on Wednesday 25 May The Illawarra Grammar School will be hosting a reading in the Goodhew Research Centre (Library) at 11.00am.
