The Shepparton second-hand book store invited the community to morning story time and a sausage sizzle lunch yesterday.
Volunteer co-ordinator Barb Putamorsi said the store wanted to engage the community with reading.
‘‘We’re really pushing early literacy for young readers and promoting that,’’ she said.
Ms Putamorsi said the store had a wide range of books on sale including fiction, non-fiction, travel biographies, gardening, cooking and reference books.
‘‘It’s important children read to really develop that love of books and that love of learning and just the curiosity and interest in holding a book and engaging in that story,’’ she said.
Parent Nicole Langley brought her sons — Frazier, 3, and Kynan , 4 — to Book Inn’s Children’s Book Week and said it was a good day.
‘‘The boys love it,’’ she said. ‘‘They love books in general so they were quite happy to come over and listen to some stories.
‘‘I’ve always read to them right from when they were little, it’s a really good skill to have.’’
