Books to inspire, guide and grow a generation
Picture Books capture children’s hearts and imaginations. They make children laugh, and can entertain like no other.
The best books have the magical ability to teach children important life lessons through story and illustration.
How it works
My Book Bag captures the magic of picture books in a monthly subscription that delivers curated books, activities and reading notes that are age and developmentally appropriate. Each month we focus on a different social emotional theme.
Our careful selection of books and research driven design of activities are aimed to assist children in learning about and processing emotions, life events and social values in a way that is meaningful and relatable.
My Book Bag is run by Ally, a Victorian Primary School Teacher with a passion for inspiring well-being through playful education. Learn more about our journey.
Each month we send you a parcel of goodies corresponding with the month's social emotional development theme.
- Two picture story books, specially curated high quality literature.
- Bookish play activities related to the month's theme.
- Parent notes to help facilitate conversation with your child during and after reading.
- A list of other ideas and activities to promote the month's value/theme.
A special reusable 'My Book Bag' fabric bag is included with your first delivery.
