National Simultaneous Storytime 2012
Now in its 12th year, National Simultaneous Storytime promotes reading and literacy to children using a picture book that explores age appropriate themes and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Grades 1 to 6. In 2011, more than 170,000 children across Australia took part in National Simultaneous Storytime.
This year’s National Simultaneous Storytime story book is The Very Cranky Bear by Nick Bland, a tale about friendship, sacrifice, and learning that appearances aren't important.

But it is plain, boring Sheep who has the answer…’
