National Simultaneous Storytime is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association and is now in it’s 16th year. Every year a picture book, written and illustrated by an Australian author and illustrator is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, pre-schools, childcare centres, family homes, bookshops and many other places around the country. Goulburn Pre-School is excited to join in this special event for another year.
This year NSS takes place on Wednesday 25 May at 11am (AEST) for the reading of I Got This Hat written by Jol and Kate Temple and illustrated by Jon Foye.
About the book: I Got This Hat
I got this hat in China. I got this hat from a miner. I got this hat from a deep-sea diver. I got this hat from a racing-car driver… Hats. Only the headless dislike them. Everyone else loves wearing them! In this fun title we take a peek at the world around us through the playful medium of hats.
About the Authors: Jol and Kate Temple
Kate and Jol Temple enjoy wearing hats together. They wear them whenever they write. Jol prefers a fedora, Kate a fez. When in San Francisco they bought a hat from an ex-girlfriend of Clint Eastwood. Kate and Jol have written five books for children including Parrot Carrot, Mike I Don’t Like and a new series of junior fiction called Jimmy Cook Discovers the Third Grade, which is due out in May.
When Kate and Jol aren’t wearing hats (which is most of the time) they write ads. They live in Rozelle, with their hat-wearing boys Arlo and Clancy.
I Got This Hat is for anyone who’s ever worn a hat and Kate and Jol are very excited it’s been selected for NSS.
