GREAT RESOURCES FOR KIDS

Story Box Library

Story Box Library is a subscription based educational website, created for children to view stories by local authors and illustrators, being read aloud by fantastic, predominantly Australian and New Zealand, storytellers.

Use it as a bedtime tale or a read aloud model – the choice is yours. No matter what the reason for your visit to Story Box Library, we help get kids excited about reading, inspire their imaginations, and let them have fun with stories

Storytime by RNZ

New Zealand audio books, stories, and music for kids of all ages. Produced by RNZ.

Kiddle

Safe sites and pages written specifically for kids. Handpicked and checked by Kiddle editors.

Most Kiddle search results are illustrated with big thumbnails, which makes it easier to scan the results, differentiate between them, and click the most appropriate results to your query. Thumbnails serve as visual clues and are especially beneficial to kids as they don't read as fast as adults.
