Congratulations to Alison Lesterand Boori Monty Prior, Australia’s new joint Australian Children’s Laureates.

As the slogan says, “Reading Changes Lives” and both Alison and Boori will be going all out to introduce as many children as possible to the important life skill that is reading.

Both Alison and Boori will be travelling around Australia to spread the word about the importance of stories and reading through 2012 and 2013.
