Welcome to Storylines
Ko tā mātou e whai nei, ko te whakaohooho i ngā taitamariki o Aotearoa me ō rātou whānau kia whai i te whakamīharotanga o te pānui pukapuka, otirā, ko aua pukapuka mā rātou i hangaia ai e ngā ringa tuhi, e ngā ringa tā o Aotearoa.
Storylines aims to inspire young New Zealanders and their whanau to enjoy the magic of reading, especially reading books created for them by New Zealand writers and illustrators.
Reading to and with young people of all ages is crucial to their development, not just their reading skills. Storylines’ sponsor, Scholastic NZ, outlines on its website just how important it is, and why reading matters to young people of all ages.
