The Feedback So Far

‘What a beautiful project for celebrating and honouring the creative lives of children…’

Ursula Dubosarsky - Australian Children’s Laureate for 2020-2021

'What a fabulous way to keep the kids entertained without a screen! It is so lovely to listen to the creative stories that kids have written and to know that maybe one day my daughter could submit a story and have her words come to life! Well done StoryKids.'

'Fantastic podcast! The story entertained my 6 y.o and spurred excited discussion about "where to" for other stories for my 10 y.o too! Great to hear the young authors discussing their ideas also.'
