The Story Box Library is a great Australian initiative that pairs the very best children's literature with the very best performers, to produce videos that can be used for educational â€“ or just storytelling â€“ purposes.Â After all, there's nothing better thanÂ having someone read you a good story!
The serviceÂ features 'engaging online Australian stories read by some of Australia's finest storytellers' such as Justine Clarke reading Greetings from Sandy Beach by Bob Graham, Clare Bowditch reading Fiona the Pig's Big Day by Leigh Hobbs and Nick Cave reading The Bunyip of Berkley's Creek byÂ Jenny Wagner and Ron Brooks.
To celebrate theÂ newÂ Australian Children's Laureate for 2016/17Â the Story Box Library has put togetherÂ this short film on Leigh Hobbs. Take a lookÂ around Leigh's studio andÂ inside the pages of his sketch book.
