Free Storytelling Sessions at Eastland Melbourne Plus Giveaway

Children and books are such an important partnership. There is no better way to open your little one's mind to the wonders, power and possibilities of their developing imagination than through a book.

Eastland Shopping Centre is proud to announce its special new partnership with Eastern Regional Libraries, bringing the art of storytelling to your child and it's all for free. This special new activity hosted by Eastland and conducted by Eastern Regional Libraries, will be held every second and last Tuesday of each month.

During these sessions, your child will be invited to read books and listen to inspiring stories while developing their social skills in the process, through interaction with others.

"Storytelling is not just about telling a story. It's all about having the heart and passion to make stories interesting for the children and at the same time, instilling in young minds, important life lessons from the story. Eastland is excited to partner with the local community and hopes that parents will love this new activity."

Celeste enjoys reading the beautiful *'Sunshine and Snowballs' by Margaret Wise Brown.
The Storytelling fun begins at Eastland from November the 11th at 11am and can be found at the centre at the Playground on level 2, every second and last Tuesday of the month.
Eastland Shopping Centre is located at 171-175 Maroondah Hwy, Ringwood, VIC. 3134.
Storytelling sessions are entirely free.

Linking up for IBOT 


  1. Our favorite book is 101 Cool Science Experiments:) I think my 4yo has been watching too much Mythbusters! #TeamIBOT

  2. my granddaughters favourite book isPeppa Pig: the Big Tale of Little Peppa because she just loves the tales of Peppa pig

  3. Our absolute fave is The Very Hungry Caterpillar

  4. Karina Lee. She loves Grug. I love Grug too..it doesn't have many words in it! And she loves the pictures!

  5. Hairy Maclary - just the funniest stories!

  6. My daughter LOVES animals so her favourite book at the moment is Dear Zoo

  7. Rosy's Red Balloon. It is a delightful story of a little bear that loses his balloon at the park. With rhyming words, colourful pictures and lots of animated words to describe sounds, my two girls are mesmerised. They know the pages by heart so there's no chance of speeding up the story and missing pages. (rm.newell@bigpond.com)

  8. My eldest loves the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, my middle daughter loves Billie B Brown books, and the youngest loves Spot books and Where Is The Green Sheep book.

  9. My eldest loved We Are Going On A Bear Hunt. I've gone to the storytime at Ringwood ERL but we'll have to try this one too! Thanks for letting us know about it!

  10. My kids struggle to have favourites just like I do but this week they are both loving the not for parents travel book by lonely planet. Where is the green sheep or kisses for daddy are always fall backs for miss 2.

  11. My two year old loves numbers, letters,,alphabet books rather than stories, it drives me crazy, though I make up stories to go with them. I love Where is the Green Sheep, on the odd occasion that he lets me read it, as it has everything. My favourite is Where the Wild Things Are.

  12. Jody, your Rafflecopter doesn't seem to like me tonight. I will try again in the morning. Sounds like a great activity for the kids. I'd love it if they offered that in our area.

  13. Working now :) I was impatient :) My little girls both enjoy Good night sleep tight at the moment. It's full of their favourite rhymes and is about two little kids putting off their bedtime :)

  14. my grandson loves his Thomas the Tank Books

  15. Currently the Meg and Mog books. I remember them from when I was a kid so I love that she's into them. We go to the library for story time each week. Such special time together and a great service :) I lobe libraries!

  16. I have always loved reading, and my girls to do. Their favourite is "Where is the Green Sheep?", we know it off by heart!

  17. The Very Hungry Caterpillar. My little one is very interested in the process by which a caterpillar morphs into a butterfly. This colourful book gives him the answer.

  18. My son loves having all different books read to him each night but one of his more favourite books he keeps going back to is Peepo.

  19. I find it hard to entice my son into reading no matter how hard I tried. Number 2 is on the way and I hope I have an interested reader this time!!

  20. My boys all love this book called "The cuddliest cuddle in the world", its about a little Leopard who misses his mummy when she is off hunting and all the jungle animals try to cheer him up with there hugs, the crocodile has snappy cuddles and the Hyena has licky cuddles etc... It's such a fun book because we enact the cuddles as we go and have lots of different sorts of cuddles that ultimately end up in lots of laughter.

  21. My daughter loves Dear Zoo as she loves making all the animal noises

  22. It was The Green b****y Sheep!

    Kirsten W

  23. I loved Possum Magic as a kid,
    I read like my Mum did.
    Gorgeous pictures throughout,
    The best kid’s book without a doubt.

  24. Xavier loves 'Goodnight New York City' we picked this up at the NYC airport when he was 10 months old.

  25. The big fat pancake-all of my kids have loved this story-i think they just like the idea of a pancake running!!

  26. Suzanne Sims
    The Jolly Postman by Allan Ahlberg, Janet Ahlberg, Mikayla loves this book, she snuggles up on the couch under her blankie and can read it two or three times before she will put it down, she says it gives her warm and fuzzy feelings inside, what she loves most is taking out the letters to read them!

  27. We love Goodnight Sleep Tight by Mem Fox. It's a delightful book containing a number of nursery rhymes, which my son knows off by heart. Most of these also have actions to them, so as a young baby he loved them and continues to do so.
    There's also a repetitive part after each rhyme, "We love it, we love it" said Bonnie and Ben..., which again my son loves to join in.
