New personalised children’s book brand, Story Antics is encouraging families to embrace the festive fun and read in the season with their young, burgeoning book lovers.

Weaving together thoughtful and enchanting narrative with captivating illustrations, Story Antics’ books provide kids the opportunity to be their own hero in a handful of quirky tales.

With six book titles currently on offer – The Christmas PresentThe Four Crazy DinosaursMonster MacaronsThe Cheeky OwlThe New Baby and Shark Swim – all Story Antics’ stories can be individually customised, encouraging little ones to embrace a genuine enjoyment of reading from an early age.

Why reading to little ones is important

According to the Department of Education and Training (Victoria), not only does reading to children from the time they are babies help to boost their imagination and cognitive development, but reading to four-and five-year olds, six to seven days per week, has the same effect as them being almost 12 months older.

Sharing stories with children is also essential for emergent literacy; when adults engage in reading experiences during those formative years, it provides children with extensive opportunities for language learning, expansion of vocabulary and developing verbal skills.

Sitting down with little ones and taking a journey through storybooks together is also a priceless bonding activity and, for many children and parents/carers, it’s the highlight of their day. No phones, no interruptions; just you and them, enjoying the moment.

The additional learning benefits of personalised storybooks

Further research published in Psychology Today also shows that children absorb and process literary knowledge and information quicker and more effectively when they can personally identify with the main character of a story.

And if that has been shown to be the case, what could be a more powerful connection for a child than sharing the same name and even similar physical attributes to the protagonist in their most beloved book? It also adds an extra element of excitement and involvement for them.

So if you’re in the process of making a list and checking it twice, Story Antics books make for the perfect present to tuck under the tree for Christmas day; it’s a one-of-a-kind gift that will be cherished forever, coming complete with space for a heartfelt printed inscription.

  • Our kids will “hide” and read books when you want them to get dressed to leave the house on time. The youngest one started “hiding” with a little book before he started walking properly and had no intentions of moving either
