Banner for National Simultaneous Storytime 2022, promoting the event details and book

May 24, 2022

We’re celebrating National Simultaneous Storytime 2022!

Deakin Library is excited to be joining National Simultaneous Storytime again in 2022. We’ll be reading along with children from the local community at several of our campuses, and we encourage you to join in virtually as well!

National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA). 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 the country.

This year, NSS will be held at 11am, Wednesday 25 May 2022 and will feature the book Family Tree, written by Josh Pyke and illustrated by Ronojoy Ghosh. You’ll find this book in our CRC collection.

Banner with information about the featured book. Text reads: About the book. Family Tree is a sweet book written by Josh Pyke and beautifully illustrated by Ronojoy Ghosh. It started with a seed, and that seed was me. And, over time, laughter filled my garden. A heartfelt celebration of family, community and the seasons of life to cherish and share.
