Tasmania’s selected role model and a parent will travel from Tasmania on Friday 24 August.
“On Saturday August 25 they will be whisked off for visits to two of Melbourne’s must-visit family experiences Scienceworks, where there is the Wallace and Gromit exhibition, and the National Sports Museum.
In the afternoon our young readers will be guests of honour at The Reading Hour event in Federation Square, meeting and mingling with some of their favourite authors as well as ABC 3 stars Kane and Amberley.
We aren’t looking for the best reader, we are looking for a young person whose enthusiasm for, participation in and perserverance with reading sets them apart.” from the website
