THE story of Macca and his pal Al captivated the youngsters of Goodstart Early Learning Orange on Molong Road on Wednesday morning, as well as millions of other children across Australia.
Kimmy Hurst's reading of 'Alpacas with Maracas', written and Illustrated by Matt Cosgrove, at the childcare centre, was part of National Simultaneous Storytime.
The initiative, organised by the Australian Library and Information Association, sees a picture book read at the same time in libraries, schools, child care centres, preschools, homes and bookshops to promote literacy and reading.
Now in its 19th year, NSS is promoted as "a colourful, vibrant, event that aims to promote the value of reading", using an Australian children's book that explores age-appropriate themes, and addresses key learning areas.
