A GROUP of excitable youngsters were treated to something special yesterday at the Rockhampton Regional Library as part of National Simultaneous Storytime day.

Children of various ages filled the library at 11am to hear a reading by Cr Rose Swadling of the story The Wrong Book.

Cr Swadling's reading was followed by a performance or sketch of The Wrong Book by CQUniversity Early Learning students Sheldon Olive and Teagan Cochrane.

Miss Olive said the book reading and performance were well received by the school children.

 

"It was a lot of fun and the kids really got into it, which was great to see," she said.

 

"It's always good to be involved in these sorts of events.

"They are definitely a good experience for us and great fun for the kids."
