Story Box Library

Features engaging online Australian stories for primary school age children, read by some of Australia's finest storytellers. Cheeky, charming and a whole lot of fun!


Story Box Library is an online ‘reading room’. It’s a place where the wonderful world of Australian Children’s Literature is on permanent exhibit.

The main intention of Story Box Library is to deliver the precious experience that sharing a book entails.

Story Box Library connect children with literature through the complementary medium of film. They provide a vibrant, interactive experience via a diverse range of everyday Australian storytellers - sportspeople, musicians, grandparents, teenagers, comedians, actors, with varying accents and from different cultures - each sharing past and present book titles. The result is meaningful, entertaining readings that focus on both teller and tale.

Use it as a bedtime tale, a facilitator for discussion in the classroom, or a read aloud model - the choice is yours.
