PRAESA’s Storyplay resources aim to help in using stories as play-related interactions between children and adults. Young children learn many essential early literacy lessons with appropriate opportunities to explore print in the company of the people around them. These resources include videos with themes of book sharing, concepts of print, pretend play, mark making, emergent writing and emergent reading.

What is Storyplay? – downloadable PDF – is a guide to what is involved in the Storyplay approach and what children can learn through it.

The Storyplay in Action series of leaflets – available soon – offers different Storyplay ideas. These are activity ideas for a selection of picture books and oral rhymes and stories. The picture books chosen are all available in South Africa and are published in a number of indigenous languages as well as English.

Read and watch Storyplay in Action moments, which illustrate significant early literacy events in young children’s lives.
