Pyjamarama in your community

Pyjamarama is all about the magic of bedtime stories and sharing fantastic books and rhymes. Every June our brilliant partners celebrate with a week of fun-filled storytime celebrations!

This summer libraries, children centres and other community settings across the country gave out over 450,000 copies of our special Pyjamarama book, Car, Car, Truck, Jeep. We loved seeing how much fun everyone had beeping and vrooming along!

You’ll find lots of great tips and downloadable activities to keep you and your littles ones excited about your new book below. Why not listen to our reading of the story while you try out some of our fantastic Pyjamarama crafts?
