World Read Aloud Day with Kate and Jol Temple (Early Stage 1, Stage 1, Stage 2, Stage 3)

Live Event

Join the incredible Kate and Jol Temple as we celebrate everything books and reading! Hear them read TWO epic picture books G.O.A.T and Bush Turkey, and engage in a live Q&A.


Students will have the opportunity to hear Kate and Jol read not one but two of their highly engaging and funny picture booksas well as ask them questions about being successful authors.

In line with the themes of G.O.A.T and Bush Turkey, the Museum of Australian Democracy education team will support students to grow their classroom community, think about how they celebrate everyone’s uniqueness and curate the spaces they learn in.


This is Goat. He’s a pretty great goat. In fact, he thinks he’s the Greatest of all Time! But some of Goat’s friends are great too. Who is really the Goat?

Bush Turkey

He’s an unusual fellow, really quite quirky. He has many names, but let’s call him … Bush Turkey! His bald head is red, he’s impeccably dressed. And right now he’s building the world’s best-ever nest! With timber and sticks slapped together with plaster … will Bush Turkey’s nest be a hit? Or a wonky disaster?!


BROUGHT TO YOU BY: Museum of Australian Democracy


Kate and Jol Temple love to write books for kids! Some of them love to rhyme and others do not. We’ve written over 26 books for kids from our bestselling Bin Chicken series to our International Jr Fiction dog detective series The Underdogs and of course, Kate’s own middle grade novel the fabulous Dangerous Business of Being Trilby Moffat.
