National Simultaneous Storytime, is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. 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.

Glebe PS invited local preschools to join our students for this fun, literacy experience. This year the book read to children across Australia at 11:00am was The Cow Tripped Over the Moon, by Tony Wilson and Laura Wood.

    National Simultaneous Storytime, aims to:

    • promote the value of reading and literacy;
    • promote the value and fun of books;
    • promote an Australian writer and publisher;
    • promote storytime activities in public libraries and communities around the country.
