Catherine Andrews reading to two young children at Storytime

Minister for Families and Children, Jenny Mikakos, and Catherine Andrews launched the Premiers’ Reading Challenge for Early Years at the Library this week.

Joining the Library’s Chief Storyteller and some of Victoria’s littlest bookworms at the Library’s weekly Storytime program, Ms Mikakos and Mrs Andrews said that reading gives young children a leg up in life, improving school outcomes, instilling a lifelong love of reading and sparking imagination.

The Early Years challenge aims to draw attention to the added benefits of reading to kids from the day they’re brought home from the hospital.
