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 matters

Reading to and with young people of all ages is crucial to their development, not just their reading skills. National Library outlines just how important  it is, and why reading matters to young people of all ages. It highlights how, as a reading role model, whanau members have a big influence on their child’s or teenager’s interest in reading outside school. One of the best ways whanau members can help is through fostering a love of reading — beginning at birth.

Videos and Tip Sheets – Member-only

Storylines members can access a series of videos that provide insights into the creative and writing processes of some of New Zealand’s top children’s and YA writers and illustrators. They can also access Top Ten Tips sheets with advice on a range of topics for writers and illustrators, written by leading New Zeland writers and illustrators.

2022 Storylines Story Tours

We are well into our programme of eight Story Tours this year - with just three more opportunities to be part of one of these invaluable experiences where students meet New Zealand writers and illustrators. Plus we have two Digital Story Tours coming up - one in Seoptember (details are above) and one in November. And remember - all Storylines Story Tours are free, so all New Zealand children can have this great opportunity.
