Oz and NZ libraries partner for 18th National Simultaneous Storytime event

Wednesday 23 May marks the 18th National Simultaneous Storytime event, an annual advocacy campaign hosted by the Australian Library and Information Association.

Each year, one picture book is selected for a simultaneous read-aloud event across Australia. This year’s book will be Hickory Dickory Dash (Scholastic) written by Tony Wood and illustrated by Laura Wood.

This year for the first time, children in New Zealand will join in and two nations will read together simultaneously. Tony Wood will return to Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne to read from his book.

Scholastic and ALIA are aiming to have one million children participating across Australia and New Zealand.
