Stories My Nana Tells is a unique concept, loved by parents and grandparents; created by Lesley Dewar. Her stories are fun, adventurous, and educational. The 6 – 11 yo kids reading them (and their parents) say, “Wow, I didn’t know that” – as fascinating facts are uncovered and built into their reading.
Whether they are just a starter, a slower reader who will adore a personalised story, or an advanced reader with a very inquisitive mind, we are sure your child will find a story to engage their imagination.
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.
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 child will want to share with you. Why? Because it's our mission to engage, entertain and educate.
