What if elephants came to High St?

FROM budget briefings to Too Many Elephants In This House, it was all in a day’s work for Cathy McGowan.

Reading to children and parents as part of National Simultaneous Storytime yesterday was a welcome change of pace for the member for Indi.

“I’ve just been at La Trobe University discussing some of the changes as a result of the budget,” she said.

“So it’s nice to take part in a positive program in Wodonga.

“It’s great connecting with families and joining in on the singing and reading.”

The MP asked what the children thought might happen if elephants did manage to take over the city’s streets.

“I think cars would be squashed and they would get into the food at Coles,” she said.

Too Many Elephants In This House by prizewinning children’s author Ursula Dubosarsky was the book featured in this year’s National Simultaneous Storytime.

It was read to 410,000 children at 2300 locations across Australia at 11am.

Dubosarsky has won nine national literary prizes.
