This is an annual campaign to encourage young children to read and enjoy books. Each year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author, is read simultaneous in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, bookshops and homes. The event is promoted by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA).
Check out your local library to see if they are holding a ‘reading’. Or organise a playgroup and explain to the children, why you are reading this book. Lots of lovely learning!!!!
