NATIONAL SIMULTANEOUS STORYTIME

Koala Kids took the National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) program to the nine regional hospitals on Wednesday 23 May at 11am – adding another 100+ young readers to the initiative.

Hickory Dickory Dash, the 2018 book was written by Tony Wilson, illustrated by Laura Wood and published and donated to Koala Kids by Scholastic.

NSS, now in its 18th year, is an annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books.  It is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, this year using an Australian children’s book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.
