The National Year of Reading
The National Year of Reading 2012 is about children learning to read and keen readers finding new sources of inspiration. It’s about supporting and celebrating all the wonderful ways we read and enjoy books. It’s about helping people discover and rediscover the magic of books. And most of all, it’s about Australians becoming a nation of readers.
All over Australia, public and school libraries, book shops, book publishers, book sellers, authors and illustrators will be involved in lots of amazing, fun, reading activities taking place around Australia and online, so people of all ages, from different backgrounds, can discover and rediscover the joy of reading.
We will be doing lots of fun activities to celebrate books and reading at our school too…stay tuned!
