Storytime: A Monthly Treat for Your Familysharing stories

Every month, you and your young ones will receive a fresh copy of Storytime in a brightly coloured envelope. Getting this in the post is a very special experience that our readers tell us they look forward to with anticipation.

Each issue of Storytime is printed on high quality paper and contains a collection of lovingly curated and gorgeously illustrated tales of all kinds from around the world. You will find fairy tales, myths and legends, folk tales, fables, and more. There is something for everyone in Storytime, whether you prefer adventure, humour, fantasy or mystery.

 

Engaging Reluctant Readers

Storytime isn’t just entertaining, it’s also educational! Stories are accompanied by fact boxes that provide interesting information and trivia related to the stories. You will also find quizzes, puzzles, and activities that stimulate children’s minds. Storytime is designed to help kids develop their literacy, vocabulary, comprehension, and general knowledge skills in a fun and engaging way.

 

Stories are proven to be the most effective way to learn whilst having fun. Things we learn through stories stay with us for far longer and are easier to comprehend as well. We know that kids enjoy brightly illustrated tales in a magazine format, and each issue contains stories of different lengths and types so everyone can find something that suits their skills and interests. Storytime has been particularly successful at engaging reluctant readers and is a firm favourite with families and schools all over the world.

 

We believe that everyone is a reader – and literacy skills are the key to bridging education gaps in society and allowing everyone to have more opportunities. For us, it’s a privilege to be part of the change we want to see in the world by creating something special and full of wonder.
