Next Wednesday is National Simultaneous Storytime at 11am. This year the book is “Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas” by Lucinda Gifford. Students at John Colet will join children from all over Australia reading this book at 11am.
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.
