Come and be part of the fun at National Simultaneous Storytime

Join thousands of children Australia-wide for this year’s 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 and many other places Australia wide.

The 2016 National Simultaneous Storytime book is I Got This Hat

The 2016 National Simultaneous Storytime book is I Got This Hat, written by Jol and Kate Templer and illustrated by Jon Foyer.

I got this hat in China. I got this hat from a miner. I got this hat from a deep-sea diver. I got this hat from a racing-car driver… Hats. Only the headless dislike them. Everyone else loves wearing them! In this fun title we take a peek at the world around us through the playful medium of hats.


This year National Simultaneous Storytime takes place on Wednesday 25 May at 11am (AEST) and everyone is invited to join in by sharing I Got This Hat with young readers.
