National Simultaneous Storytime!

Today Okeedokee Norman Park joined more than 1 Million children across Australia in reading ‘Alpacas with Maracas’. Our rooms came together for a morning of reading, maraca-making, talent show performing and more, before the big moment at 11am, when the book was read by a real life alpaca!! (Well, kind of…) 

National Simultaneous Storytime happens at more than 8000 locations across Australia, promoting the value and fun of reading in libraries, schools, childcare centres and more. This may have been the first year we at Okeedokee have participated, but we look forward to many more!
