National Simultaneous Storytime

Each year since 2001 Australia has hosted a National Simultaneous Storytime. A great idea highlighting the importance of reading to our children, and the importance of reading Australian stories to our Australian children.

Recently I came across the list of books used over the years. It makes a great starting list for recent Australian picture books.
