National Simultaneous Storytime

Wednesday, the 19th of May, was National Simultaneous Storytime and PPN, along with 125 000 other locations around Australia, joined Una, an adventurous 10 year who wants more space!

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. Now in its 21st year, NSS has established itself as being a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy

PPN definitely had fun with Una and her adventures through our Solar System. Class got to choose how they got to read the book. Your child may have been read to by their teacher or they could have gone on a literary adventure with Dr Shannon Walker, an American Astronaut on the International Space Station!

No matter how the book was enjoyed it is pretty cool to know that 1 million kids were reading the same book, together around all of Australia.

Great work, PPN! Keep reading and enjoying this space that God has given us.
