The Reading Hour will see hundreds of families reading for an hour together on 25 August from 2.00pm within the Niddrie library. This hour-long community event will be hosted in conjunction with the Kumon Essendon Education Centre, for Kumon students and the wider public to share in the magic of reading.
Special guests will be reading books aloud to the gathered group and a variety of stories, including popular children’s books from the library’s collection will also be available for families to share on the day. Plus local bookseller Book Bonding will be selling titles from the Kumon recommended reading list. An interest in reading is something that can be nurtured in all children from the time they are born. Throughout 2012, Kumon Australia and Moonee Valley Libraries encourage all parents to spend ’10 minutes a day’ reading with their child, to encourage a love of learning for life.
