It’s Harmony Day! In Australia, we are blessed to live in a truly multicultural society and today is one of the days we celebrate our diversity.
Harmony Day is all about inclusiveness, respect and a sense of belonging for everyone. This week at Storytime, we will be celebrating this special day with books and activities based around multiculturalism. After Tuesday Storytime at Success Library, you can check out the Community Health and Harmony Day in the foyer and upstairs.
Books for sharing on Harmony Day (and any day!)
The Hello atlas by Ben Handicott allows children to learn how other kids speak in countries around the world. There is also an app available to enable readers to hear the sounds of the different languages as they travel the globe.
Handa’s surprise by Eileen Browne takes us to Kenya, where Handa is taking a gift of seven fruits to her friend. Children can learn about a variety of African animals and food in this classic children’s book.
