National Simultaneous Storytime (NSS) is an important annual campaign that aims to encourage more young Australians to read and enjoy books. Now in its 14th successful year 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 Grades F to 6 and the pre-school Early Learning Years Framework.

Join us by sharing Too Many Elephants in This House written by Ursula Dubosarsky and illustrated by Andrew Joyner.
