Heads up: the National Simultaneous Storytime event is happening 11am on the 27th May 2015, where thousands of little bookworms will join together to listen to the same story book in libraries, schools and homes all around Australia. The annual campaign aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books through a colourful, vibrant and fun event whilst promoting an Australian author.
To participate, contact your local library or join in at home by grabbing a copy of the book. Don’t forget to register for free to get access to loads of great activities!
This year’s National Simultaneous Storytime book is The Brothers Quibble by Aaron Blabey. Welcoming a new baby sibling is a common experience for many children that can be confusing, exciting and filled with new emotions. For Spalding Quibble who ruled the roost and shared it with no other, a brand new baby brother will change his life forever.
Exploring themes of sibling rivalry, friendship and family love, the Brothers Quibble is a fantastic book for anybody who’s ever to call someone their brother or sister.
The Brothers Quibble is available from Bookworld
