Video books to enjoy together

Take ten minutes to share stories with your little ones. Our Share A Story Corner videos have familiar characters and easy to follow stories, and tips for reading together. Look at the pictures together, guess what the characters are up to and ask your child what they think will happen next. Your child will soon be asking to read together again and again! 

It’s never too early to read stories with your child and spending just ten minutes every day enjoying books together can make a BIG difference to their development. Sharing stories boosts creativity and imagination, improves wellbeing, is a positive experience for parents, carers, guardians, grandparents – everyone! – and is great fun!

COMING SOON… brand new video stories, Ruby’s Worry and Ravi’s Roar, written and illustrated by Tom Percival. Part of the Big Bright Feelings series published by Bloomsbury these beautiful and thought-provoking picture books will come with accompanying activities for children and parents/carers to enjoy doing together.
