Donate a children's book to the Storybook Project!

If you’d like to support Storybook, we’d love it if you could donate a children’s picture book (or books!). Here is a list of some of our most popular Storybook titles, but please feel free to introduce us to your whānau’s favourite title if you think it would make a great read-aloud story.

We can use any new picture books suitable for 0-10 year olds that lend themselves to being read aloud (in no more than 10 minutes). We like to have a range of subject matter to cater to different interests and age groups, with a mixture of board books and picture books, books in English and bilingual books in te reo Māori.
