National Simultaneous Storytime 2021 - an intergalactic experience!
For the first time, astronauts from the International Space Station will take part in National Simultaneous Storytime, joining over a million kids on Earth in Australia and New Zealand as they read Give Me Some Space! by Philip Bunting.
About The Book
Una dreams of a life in Space. Life on Earth is just so so-so. But how will she get there? And will she complete her mission to discover life in Space? And did she remember to feed Neil the goldfish?
About The Author
Philip Bunting is an author and illustrator, with a soft spot for creating picture books for sleep-deprived, time-poor, raisin-encrusted parents (and their children).
Philip’s work deliberately encourages playful interaction between the reader and child, allowing his books to create a platform for genuine intergenerational engagement, and fun.
