Story Box Library
Reading aloud to children, in particular by diverse and engaging storytellers, greatly improves language and literacy skills, especially in the early years of a child’s development. Sadly, studies show that many children are not read to frequently enough.
Story Box Library offers an 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, or just for fun – the choice is yours.
