Final stop for the National Book Relay - get ready to see the book - Alpacas with Maracas skydive in from a plane!
Come join Bright Spark and the Reading Bug, our special guest star story tellers, Aunty Lorraine Brown and Kirli Saunders, for some singing, dancing, reading and craft!
This event, which marks the last leg of the relay, coincides with National Simultaneous Storytime. As part of the festivities we'll be joining more than
1 million children across Australia reading Alpacas With Maracas by Matt Cosgrove.
All families with children 0 - 5 years are invited!
Please note: We have a special Social Story about this event also which you can view and access for your child HERE. A Social Story is a short story about a social situation or event. Easy to read language and photos
helps us to understand what will happen at the event so we can plan and prepare and have a great time! A Social Story is also important for kids who
have a disability, have Autism, are anxious or find new places overwhelming.
Paint the Gong ReAD is all about encouraging and celebrating reading, singing, talking and rhyming with children from birth.
Please note: Wet weather option will be North Wollongong Surf Club.
