Take the Storytime Pledge

These school holidays, it’s time to take the Storytime Pledge.

A book. A child. A reader. A promise.

Join Australia’s science community in standing up (or sitting down) to prioritise sharing a book with a child in your life, and help our next generation reach their fullest potential.

The Storytime Pledge is a campaign being run by Australia’s Chief Scientist, Dr Alan Finkel, calling on all Australians to do one simple thing: read a book to a child.
