"If you want your children to be intelligent, read them fairy tales. If you want them to be more intelligent, read them more fairy tales." - Albert Einstein

The importance of reading to kids cannot be over-stressed, but a concerning study has revealed that 50% of children have never read a book with their parents.  

Additionally, too many kids are struggling to read and write, and those who miss out on early childhood education may never fully catch up on their cognitive and personal development, and will probably battle with learning to read, write, spell later in life. 

In an effort to help busy parents to engage with their kids over beautiful stories we're gathering some of the best local reading resources in one place.

Here you can browse beautiful local stories for all ages, from baby to toddler to pre-school and beyond.

Check in often for the latest updates, and always find something new and exciting to read with your kids in Parent24's new Storytime hub.

You'll find books, audio and resources to download for all ages, from warm and engaging stories appropriate for younger babies and toddlers to stories that offer lessons, adventure and local experiences to older children.
