Australia has a well-established children’s literature scene, teeming with talent, and Australian Women Online is keen to showcase that talent by launching its Bedtime Stories series – a collection of exclusive short stories by established authors and new Australian writers.
Four stories will be published each month – one every Monday morning – on a central theme.
We invite you to download and print these wonderful stories and read them to your children each week – or, indeed, have your children read them to you. All stories are original – and you may just see some work from some of Australia’s best known writers.
