On behalf of Their Excellencies General the Honourable David Hurley AC DSC (Retd) and Mrs Linda Hurley, I am writing to invite you and your students to participate in a live reading of Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas as part of this year's National Simultaneous Storytime.
Written and Illustrated by Lucinda Gifford, Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas takes the reader on a fun-filled discovery about why Whitney and Britney - two seemingly ordinary backyard chickens - sleep all day long. Could it have something to do with them sneaking out at night to a local jazz club?
The reading will take place on 11 am (AEST) on Wednesday 27 May 2020 at https://facebook.com/events/s/national-simultaneous-storytim/578428786111083/?ti=as
As in previous years, National Simultaneous Storytime 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. A large range of supporting teaching resources (including digital copies of the book, video and audio recordings, colouring-in pages and crosswords) can be downloaded free of charge from the National Simultaneous Storytime website.
