National Simultaneous Storytime 2016

IGotThisHatIt’s nearly that time of year again!  The National Simultaneous Storytime is on – 25 May 2016.  All Neighbourhood Houses in Tasmania are invited to participate.

This year’s NSS book is I Got This Hat by Jol and Kate Temple.

It is easy to participate.  Simply email Steve, or call him on 03 6228 6515, to register your interest.  At the same time indicate whether you would like Steve to come and read this year’s NSS book (and others) at your House.  Then plan.  Ask as many parents and carers as you are able, to bring their children to your House for the event.

Once again the Everyday Literacy for Local Communities program is supporting this great event with a FREE book for every child that attends one of your events – courtesy of the very generous support of Fullers Bookshop in Collins Street Hobart, and the with the ongoing support of The Hobart Bookshop in Salamanca Square, Hobart.

This year we would like to have 800 children attend Neighbourhood House events.  So please make the message known within your communities – come along and get a FREE book!
