A delightful new series featuring some of Australia’s most loved celebrities as they snuggle up on the Story Time couch and read entertaining picture books written by Australian authors.
Award-winning actor Samuel Johnson, comedian Rove McManus, yellow Wiggle, Emma Watkins, family favourite Grant Denyer, ABC’s 7.30 host Leigh Sales, and writer and actor Nakkiah Lui will all take to the Story Time couch to each read one of seven books. They will be accompanied by much-loved toys Big Ted, Little Ted, Jemima, Humpty and Joey.
During each episode, the Magic Story Drawer will pop open to reveal a special clue leading to the book of the day. Following this discovery, each presenter will then make themselves comfy on the couch next to their favourite toy and begin to read.
The seven books, selected from The Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Notables Book List include Zelda’s Big Adventure by Marie Alafaci and illustrated by Shane McG, Pig the Winner by Aaron Blabey, Snail and Turtle Rainy Days by Stephen Michael King, Ducks Away! by Mem Fox and Judy Horacek, Goodnight, Mice! by Frances Watts and Judy Watson, Wombat Big Puggle Small by Renee Treml and Where is Bear? by Jonathan Bentley.
