Books about Brothers & Sisters May 01 2015

This month we celebrate National Simulatanous Storytime (NSS). NSS is an initiative of the Australian Library and Information Association. Each 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.

This year the book The Brothers Quibble has been selected for this year and is a story about siblings. To that theme we've pulled together a collection of great sibling themed picture books:

Herbert & Harry. Pamela Allen.
The Children Who Loved Books, Peter Carnavas
Rules of Summer. Shaun Tan
One Busy Day, Lola M Schaefer
Go to Sleep Jessie, Libby Gleeson & Freya Blackwood
The Swap, Jan Ormerod, Andrew Joyner

In 2014 over 460,000 children at over 3,100 locations across Australia took part in National Simultaneous Storytime, reading the book Too Many Elephants in this House, written by Ursula Dubosarsky and illustrated by Andrew Joyner, enjoying a range of supporting educational activities, songs, games, dress ups and lots of fun. Have a look at some of the highlights from 2014.
