‘Grab and go’ books for Little Explorers

by Brighton Council

Libraries Tasmania has created Little Explorers, a new ‘grab and go’ book pack for children aged 4–8 years. Little Explorers Book Packs follow Baby Book Packs which are a go-to resource for parents and carers of babies and toddlers from 0–3 years. Each Little Explorers book pack contains five carefully selected books on an early learning topic:

  • Living things: books about plants, animals, habitats and life cycles.
  • Our planet: books about resources, sustainability, recycling, weather and climate.
  • Space: books about planets, stars and space exploration.
  • You, me, everyone: books about families, communities, culture and celebrations.

Tasmanian illustrator Rachel Tribout has created the four delightful Little Explorers characters that represent each topic area and help guide children’s reading.

The Little Explorers need names! You can help name the four adventurous friends – Tasmanian children aged 4-8 years can suggest a name for each Explorer by 15 December 2023. You could even win a bag full of books! Entries can be submitted at www.libraries.tas.gov.au, search for ‘Little Explorers’. The books support independent readers to enjoy reading solo as well as shared reading between children and adults.

Each pack has a combination of story books and information books along with reading tips and activities based on the topic. You can grab a pack at Bridgewater Library.
