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 20th 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 NSS takes place on Wednesday 27 May 2020 at 11:00am and I would love it if you could join me while I read to you via our Facebook page Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas written and illustrated by Lucinda Gifford.
A number of activities are available below. Share these on the Library Facebook page for everyone to see.
