This week in Primary, the students participated in ALIA’s 20th National Simultaneous Storytime event. 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 around Australia and parts of the world. This year the text selected was ‘Whitney and Britney: Chicken Divas’ written and illustrated by Lucinda Gifford.
The boys and girls found it hard to believe they were reading the same book at the same time as over one million children all across Australia! From feather boas to bubble machines and disco dancing, there was fun to be had for everyone!
