The Cow tripped over the Moon

"Hey diddle diddle"... You all know the riddle . A cow jumps over the moon, but the moon is very high in the sky. How many attempts will it take before Cow makes her famous high-flying leap? Junior School students learnt the answer when they participated in the annual National Simultaneous Storytime reading of “The Cow tripped over the Moon” by author, Tony Wilson .

 National Simultaneous Storytime is held annually by the Australian Library and Information Association. 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.

 The aim of the storytime is to promote:

  • the value of reading and literacy;
  • the value and fun of books;
  • an Australian writer and publisher;
  • storytime activities in public libraries and communities around the country;
  • provide opportunities to involve parents, grandparents, and others to participate in and enjoy the occasion.

Students heard a reading of the book by Mr Kynoch and Mrs Weightman and then took part in Art activities.
