Snuggle in for a special bedtime reading of Alpacas with Maracas at Kwinana Public Library

TAKE bedtime stories to the next level with a special reading of ‘Alpacas with Maracas’ at Kwinana Public Library on May 22.

Children are encouraged to wear their favourite pyjamas and bring their favourite teddy to snuggle in for a fun time of stories, songs and a musical craft to take home.

Matt Cosgrove is the author and illustrator of ‘Alpacas with Maracas’ which was the top pick for National Simultaneous Storytime this year.

Each year a picture book written and illustrated by Australians is read simultaneously in libraries, schools, child care centres, pre-schools, home and bookshops to promote literacy and reading.

Last year, more than a million participants in more than 8200 locations took part in National Simultaneous Storytime.

Registrations to the Kwinana event are essential so call 9236 4300 or email library@kwinana.wa.gov.au to secure a spot.

The event is free and will be held from 5.30pm to 6.30pm.
