  • National Simultaneous Storytime

    27 May, 2014

    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. The aim is to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. This year National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) took place on Wednesday, 21st May, at 11.00am and thousands of students shared the story, Too Many Elephants in This House written by Ursula Dubosarsky and illustrated by Andrew Joyner.

    Kinder Red were lucky enough to have our very own storyteller (Christine Sweeney - Leo’s Mum) to share this with us. We made elephant masks and puzzles in preparation for the day. The students were then able to use their masks to act out the story. We also enjoyed some ‘Elephant Food’ (popcorn) as a bit of a treat after the story.

    We would like to thank Christine very much for coming in to read with us, and we look forward to your future storytelling visits.
