Amy Adeney

Writer, teacher, reader. Founder of Busy Bookworms for pre-schoolers.
“I believe reading is the simplest way to achieve instant calm – the only way to silence a classroom of rowdy 7-year-olds when I was a teacher, the best way to put an end to my children’s sibling squabbles, and the one thing that stops the incessant tick-tick-tick of my own mind.”

Are you ready for Australian Reading Hour 2021?
Ok, take a deep breath, and repeat after us.

“I will read or listen to an Australian book, whether written or drawn or illustrated or spoken aloud, wherever I may be, in city or bush, in the bath, in bed or up a tree, for one hour on Tuesday 14 September 2021. I will read silently or aloud, I will read by myself or in a crowd. I will read a story that matters to me.”

Great! We’d love to keep you up to date with the latest news and events.
