Today we are celebrating the National Year of Reading, Library and Information Week and National Simultaneous Storytime.
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 around the country.
This is a fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy. We found A Very Cranky Bear in the Library and when he woke up he was very upset so his friends helped feel better.
The story by Nick Bland was performed by members of the Library team before a large crowd – Fiona/Moose, Tammy/ Lion, Liz/Zebra and Therese/Sheep all tried to cheer up Peter/Bear led by Narrator/Lisa. It was lots of fun and children had a great time enjoying the craft and morning tea. Thank you for coming along. Lucky that bear isn’t cranky anymore!
