Story Box Library is an educational website, created for children to view stories by local authors and illustrators, being read aloud by fantastic, predominantly Australian and New Zealand, storytellers.
It is intended for use as a complementary form of delivering the precious experience of being read aloud to, in order to improve children’s lives. We connect children with literature through the complementary medium of film providing a vibrant, interactive experience via a diverse range of everyday storytellers – sportspeople, musicians, grandparents, teenagers, comedians, actors, with varying accents and from different cultures – each sharing past and present book titles.
Use it as a bedtime tale, a facilitator for discussion in the classroom, or a read aloud model – the choice is yours. Use the At Home Activity Time projects which accompany each story for individual and family connections.
