The Yarrawonga Library was the place to be for the 17th National Simultaneous Storytime.

The Cow Tripped Over The Moon, written by Australian author Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood was the book chosen for this year and it proved a hit with the Yarrawonga youngsters who not only read the book but made their own ‘cow themed’ library bags on the day.

National Simultaneous Storytime is an annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books.

It is a colourful, vibrant, fun event that aims to promote the value of reading and literacy, using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas of the National Curriculum for Foundation to Year 6.
