Helping children understand climate change through stories

BY JAMES BENNETT


Using Story Box Library’s environment story collection and activity ideas, library staff can engage kids in climate change issues, encouraging care for the natural world, and consideration for community and global sustainability.

National Families Week is an opportunity to celebrate and highlight all the characters and vitality of family members everywhere. Find stories about Family Life on Story Box Library.

Read feature interviews from library subscribers, including Gabbi Wylie from the City of Ryde Libraries, who coordinates the children’s and young adult services across the City of Ryde’s five branches, and Kelly Makepeace, speech pathologist and Childhood Literacy Officer at Central Northern Libraries, who is undertaking a project to improve accessibility for children’s books at her library, helping young kids with language and literacy skills in her Tamworth community.
