On Thursday, September 20, 2018, stop what you’re doing for one hour and pick up a book. The Australian Reading Hour is about encouraging Australians to read an additional hour and reflect on the benefits of reading. Take the extra time to learn, grow, escape and relax.
As you all know, reading has been shown to be very beneficial to children in so many ways. To help you make the most of this event we’ve put together a list of links to resources that will get you started.
