Little Explorers book a literary adventure

Libraries Tasmania has created new ‘grab and go’ book packs for children aged four to eight, encouraging them to be Tasmania’s next Little Explorers.

Each Little Explorers book pack feature five books, with each pack focusing on a specific topic: “living things’, ‘our planet’, ‘space’, and ‘you, me, everyone’.

“Little Explorers book packs are a fantastic resource for busy families and are easy to grab and go,” Libraries Tasmania’s Director of Collections Ross Latham said.

“The four book pack topics are really fun and provide early learning as well as special opportunities for reading time with children.”

The packs come with a combination of story books and information books filled with reading tips and activities for children to do.

The book packs were launched at a special event at the Hobart Library this month, with Commissioner for Children and Young People Leanne McLean reading one of the books to students from Bellerive Primary School and St Mary’s College.

Children are also able to participate in a competition to name the four Little Explorer characters, illustrated by Tasmanian artist Rachel Tribout.

The competition runs until 15 December and can be entered on the Libraries Tasmania website.

The Little Explorers book packs are available in libraries across Tasmania and can be requested at libraries not currently stocking them.
