What is StorySmiths?
We’ve learnt that many parents out there enjoy what reading or books can offer their family. But over time, picking the right book is a struggle or they may feel that their family’s storytelling experience can be better but don’t know how. StorySmiths will help bridge the gap based on their own experience or speciality with one single aim - to help Malaysian parents with their storytelling journey.
We selected a group of parents, educators and professionals who are children’s books aficionados, storytellers or just people who have a passion in bringing out the best in children and wanting the best for their well-being to review books in our Me Books Collection.
