Every year on the third Wednesday in May, a picture book by an Australian author and illustrator is read simultaneously around the country.
We would like to invite you to participate in our National Simultaneous Storytime event.
Join in the fun at Dymocks Joondalup on Wednesday 23 May 2018, 11am when we will be reading Hickory Dickory Dash by Tony Wilson and Laura Wood. We will also have some Hickory Dickory Dash activity sheets for the kids to have fun with.
"Before the clock strikes one, a mother mouse must search the house for her two missing sons. But she’d better watch out for the cat!"
This is a free event but bookings are required.
National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). 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.
Now in its 18th 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.
