Last Wednesday, as part of Library and Information Week, QUT Kelvin Grove and Caboolture libraries hosted the annual National Simultaneous Storytime which aims to encourage young Australians to read and enjoy books.
Local kindergartens supported the event and thoroughly enjoyed the reading of the book ‘I Got This Hat’ written by Jol and Kate Temple. Education students assisted the Library staff to organise the activities and enjoyed dressing up for the occasion maybe more than the children did.
From puppet play, dressing up and colouring in, to exploring the uses of an app called ‘Quiver’ on the iPads, the children were immersed in the book and enjoyed reading about different hats. There were also pirate hats to be made and games to play with the “I got this hat’ book app.
This is an event not to be missed next year!
