If you are a regular reader of Hip Little One you will know by now that I am a big book lover. I love reading myself and so do my four little ones, it’s one of our favourite family activities and a result we have an ever-growing collection of books. Not only is reading relaxing and fun to do, books can also help explain situations, celebrate milestones and deal with emotions in child-friendly way. The key is to find the right book for the right event…

Wombat Goes To SchoolAt Story Mama they understand that most parents don’t have time to visit store after store and sift through endless shelves of kids books trying to find the perfect book, which is why they have done all the hard work for you. From alphabets to animals, from colours to Christmas, from moving house to going on a holiday, from learning to swim to starting school and everything in between, Story Mama has got it all covered.

Going On A PlaneAustralian mum and owner of Story Mama Debbie has handpicked (or should I say hand read) every single book in store herself, read it over and over again and rated it to make your shopping experience as quick and simple as possible. The easy to navigate website allows you to search by age, milestone or interest to be presented with a selection of beautiful children’s books that ticks YOUR boxes.

Where Is The Green Sheep?If you want to spoil a special little person with a good read that is sure to get the thumbs up you can never go wrong with one of Australia’s Favourite Kids Books. I also love the section with Victorian Premier’s Reading Challenge Books, I know our twins would really appreciate this little encouragement to take part in this great initiative that gets school kids reading. Mem Fox, Eric Carle, Alison Lester, Dr. Seuss, they’re all at your fingertips.
