Emma Wiggle Announced as NSS 2020 Storyteller

BY JAMES BENNETT


For the last six years, Story Box Library have been bringing the National Simultaneous Storytime book to life with dynamic storytellers and fun locations! Last year, they filmed the always-hilarious Alpacas with Maracas at Stanton Library. Amidst the passion evident within the library’s walls, they filmed their latest story release, Barney, read by Stanton’s own Yasmin Greenhalgh ... And they got some footage of alpacas roaming library shelves to get readers into the NSS spirit!
 
This year, Story Box Library are bringing the glitter and feather boas to a reading of Whitney and Britney Chicken Divas! With Emma Watkins from the Wiggles as Storyteller, and with guest appearances from some very cute chicken divas, SBL will be once again be sharing fun videos and photos from the shoot … sure to ruffle reader’s feathers with excitement in the lead up to the big day!
 
To join in on the fun, you can follow Story Box Library on Instagram and Facebook, and register for National Simultaneous Storytime at alia.org.au/nss.
