Over the past twelve months, since my move to Busselton, my business at Stories My Nana Tells has been virtually suspended.
After 10 years, I am taking a new direction – and I will maintain an online presence, but in a new format. So, for the time being, there won’t be much happening here while I work through the changes and streamline the website.

CLICK ON THE PICTURE WHICH SUITS YOUR CHOSEN CHILD'S READING AGE
Vivid pictures, your chosen child’s own name and photograph, and the fun of learning make these stories ideal for youngsters. Seeing and hearing their own name in the story raises their sense of self-esteem and confidence. Lesley puts your child IN the story.
Having adventures in a magic red helicopter is proven to appeal to kids of this age. With lots of full colour pictures, their own name through it and with their photo included, these stories instill a sense of being adaptable and capable.
Lesley Dewar has a unique writing style. She uses science to engage young readers so they learn wild life facts through images, rhymes, and questions. Vivid photos connect our 3-to-5-year-old fans with the wildlife in a way that illustrations do not.
Why The Red Helicopter?
Because this Nana loves helicopters and flies in them every chance she gets! She has landed in the Grand Canyon, and on a glacier. She flew over the Remarkables NZ, a volcano in Hawaii, and through the Bungle Bungles in the Kimberley. In New York, she circled the Statue of Liberty and the whole of Manhattan Island, before flying at the RAAF Base in WA. So, jump aboard her magic red helicopter and come fly with us into a new and exciting world of stories.
Short Story Snippets
Snippets are short stories we write for fun, and for sharing "stuff". We definitely have a quirky sense of humour, too. Occasionally, a snippet becomes the seed of an idea for a book, too. 800 words isn't always enough to tell the whole story, but for our younger readers, it's a great way to get started.
Snippets include a heap of "WOW! I didn't know that!" moments your chosen child will want to share with you. Why? Because it's our mission to engage, entertain and educate.
