National Simultaneous Storytime - St John Fisher Tumbi Umbi

National Simultaneous Storytime

Next week we are going to participate (once again) in National Simultaneous Storytime. This year NSS takes place on Wednesday 19 May 2021 from the International Space Station and we will be sharing” Give Me Some Space” written and illustrated by Philip Bunting.

Everyone can join NSS, it doesn’t matter whether you are at home, a school, a public library or even a university library!  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. 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 Kindergarten to Year 6.

It is particularly exciting to have the story coming from the International space station!!!!!

Happy Reading, Christine Higgins (Teacher Librarian)
