This section presents ideas, strategies and resources to support teacher-librarians, teachers and parents in contributing to the development of literacy skills and a lifelong love of literature.
In partnership with the Australian Literacy and Numeracy Foundation (a national charity committed to bringing literacy to all), StoryKids is available as a free resource for all children on Apple Podcasts and Spotify. They have a particular focus on amplifying the voices of Indigenous, Asylum Seeking, Rural and Neurodiverse children.
Their website (storykids.com.au) also hosts a series of resources for each episode of the podcast - to scaffold children's understanding of different storytelling concepts and methods. The website also contains details on how to submit a story for the podcast.
