This year the story being read is Hickory Dickory Dash written by Tony Wilson and illustrated by Laura Wood, a story in which a mother mouse searches a house for her two sons. Tony Wilson has been writing books for children for more than a decade. Other books written by him include The Cow Tripped Over the Moon, Grannysaurus Rex and Harry Highpants.

Part of the Library and Information Week, this event was first started by Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) in 2001 to help promote the value of reading and literacy. This event has been a success since its debut. In 2017, there were 686,324 participants at over 6,129 locations.

Aside from listening to the story, various other activities such as songs, games and dress ups, are also held to help enhance the experience for children.

Your Comment
This story is a great twist on an old nursery rhyme. If you can't get to the library, borrow the book and enjoy it at home.
