Scribble Resources and Activities

Resources and Activities

The coming months are going to be difficult and challenging for all of us, but especially for our children. Books and stories always offer joy, comfort and escape, but especially in unsettling times—whether read alone in a moment of peace and quiet, or shared with family or friends as a read-aloud activity.

With schools closed around the world, families are finding themselves at home together for long periods of time. While simply reading a book gives us many wonderful hours of entertainment (or fifteen minutes, depending on how small the reader is) we know kids and those who care for them will need some additional mental and physical activity.

With that in mind, we’ve created this central page for all of our teaching notes, which include discussion points, activities, and interviews with the creators, and have included links to all of our books read on Story Box Library.

We will also be updating this resources page regularly to add additional activities and resources – including colouring sheets!
