National Simultaneous Storytime is always an exciting event on the reading calendar in Libraries and schools across Australia and New Zealand. This year the chosen title is the hilarious Alpacas with Maracas.
Junior School classes will enjoy having the story read to them by Mrs Salisbury during circle time this week. On Thursday, during first break, students can come and see it read by Jimmy Rees (Jimmy Giggle from the ABC) and the author Matt Cosgrove on the big screen in the Library. Does a real live alpaca like to eat pickles? Those who come will find out! We may even end up videoing our own reading of the story next week if we have enough adventurous participants. It will be another great opportunity to celebrate our love of reading and to shimmy and shake our maracas!
