Congrats Paint Penrith REaD!

Today Paint Penrith REaD launched a new book for babies – Rooby’s Counting Book. The event, like so many PTTR events across Australia, epitomised everything that is important about PTTR.

A collaborative partnership – between Mission Australia, Penrith City Council, a local business Featherdale Wildlife Park, and a local graphic designer to name just a few.

Senior managers committed to supporting grass roots workers and volunteers getting the message about REaD from Birth out into the community.

Whole families invited. All activities reading, singing, drawing, looking at animals, focussed around children.

Children loving their PTTR mascot – Rooby Roo AND knowing what Rooby loves to do best of all – reading.

Sustainability – being there for the long haul. In Penrith’s case now over 10 years.

A clear message: Spread the word. Reading is important from Day 1!

Rooby Roo has a special message for children who read and sing everyday. Well done! You are growing your brain. A big thank you to all family members who make time to read and sing with little ones. You are making a big difference in their lives.
