National Simultaneous Storytime 2010

Smudge the dog got to meet lots of boys and girls at Sutherland Library's storytime on Wednesday 26th May 2010 when Bruce Whatley and Rosie Smith's story 'Little White Dogs Can't Jump was read as part of National Simultaneous Storytime.
National Simultaneous Storytime is a campaign organised by the Australian Library and Information Association. During this storytime, a picture book written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator is read simultaneously to children in a variety of venues around Australia.
The campaign promotes the value of books and encourages young people to read, share books and become involved in other fun and engaging literary based activities. The campaign is an integral part of promoting the value of reading and literacy within Australian society.
In 2009, over 120,000 children and adults across Australia took part in National Simultaneous Storytime.
Smudge behaved himself most of the time, but the best part of his day was he got to have a ride in mum's brand new red sports car. Some of the big kids also had a turn at driving!
Sutherland Shire Libraries hold a variety of storytimes and other activities for children at all your libraries.
