Explore Story Box Library’s First Nations’ Stories

Story Box Library’s First Nations’ Stories (previously titled Indigenous Story Time) is a growing collection of picture books centering respected and well-known First Nations creators and storytellers, reading about history, culture, First Nations legends, connections to Country, and more.

“We are all life long learners and as such do not have to have all the answers…check the teacher notes and also treat these beautiful books as you would any other rich text in the classroom or with children at home.”
