Great books and stories for kids

Come and join the fun as we share wonderful stories, books and fun at your local library! Story Times are held regularly in public libraries right across Western Australia. Your storyteller will share fantastic picture books, stories, songs and rhymes. Parents, grandparents and carers are all welcome. Sessions are usually for children aged three to five and often involve a craft activity.

For more information on sharing stories at home please explore the Four and Fives program, or our Birth to Three program.

I tell stories in Vietnamese and read to my children in English.  I only started reading English after receiving Better Beginnings.

One mother reads with her four year old every afternoon after school now.  She said without these books, they would not have any to read.

I think it’s been a wonderful initiative.  I feel sure it’s going to benefit both the children and parents and develop links with the library.

…I never thought of reading to my baby.  Better Beginnings has really boosted my confidence.

Better Beginnings gave me confidence. I know reading is an everyday tool and teaching my children will help them be more successful in life.
