Read and Rhyme Time


Read and Rhyme sessions support parents and caregivers of babies and toddlers to lay strong foundations for early literacy development through song, rhyme and story. Babies are learning from day 1 and sharing books and rhyme is a wonderful way to help you develop their language skills and vocabulary as well as being a rewarding time that you spend with your child.

2019 sees the fifteenth year of the Premier’s Reading Challenge in South Australia.

South Australian students from Reception to Year 12 are challenged to read twelve books by early September 2019.

The Premier’s Reading Challenge continues to be an important initiative that supports the State Government’s commitment to increase the literacy skills of young South Australians and encourage them to enjoy reading, with more than 95 per cent of South Australian schools having students completing the Challenge. Last year more than 129,500 students from 705 schools took part in the reading challenge.

Information about the Challenge is available on the Premier’s Reading Challenge website, by telephoning 8226 2006 or by email at
