Yesterday a ‘flashmob’ of staff, parents and patients dropped everything to read for 30 minutes at the RCH to highlight the benefits of reading as an essential life skill.
The Royal Children’s Hospital (RCH) is a partner in the 2012 National Year of Reading. This year is all about children learning to read and keen readers finding new sources of inspiration. It’s about supporting reading initiatives while respecting the oral tradition of storytelling. It’s about helping people discover and rediscover the magic of books.
And most of all, it’s about Australians becoming a nation of readers.
