We love stories. By sharing stories with children from the day they are born, they learn to talk. Getting kids talking well is the best way to get them ready to read. If kids read well it sets them up to do well at school, at work, and in relationships, to have good health and a great life.
We Love Stories celebrates our awesome Banyule community telling stories and working together to get all our kids ready to read. We can write, speak, sing or draw our stories. They can be true or made up, long or short, silly or serious. We are making and sharing our own stories – new and old.
We Love Stories is a community initiative managed by Banyule Community Health with lots of support from across Banyule and beyond.
