Today at 11am was National simultaneous Storytime (NSS) which is an annual Australian event that is aimed at encouraging young Australians to read and enjoy books. More information can be found at ALIA.
This years book is The Cow Tripped Over the Moon by Tony Wilson and Laura Wood. It is such a fun story, and in celebration of NSS I thought I would share my thoughts on this book.
