Paint Cumberland REaD

Paint Cumberland REaD is an early learning literacy program that introduces young children to the joy of reading and storytelling.

It’s never too early to enjoy reading

Research shows that developing basic literacy skills at an early age can help children’s transition to school – and their success rate later in life.

Paint Cumberland REaD introduces children up to 5 years of age to the world of words through Poppy the Possum. You’ll find Poppy sharing stories with children at many education and care venues, local events and public parks.

Book a Poppy Storytime for an education and care service by completing a Storytime request form, or phone Council 02 8757 9000.
