Win with Storytime Club (because reading is rad)

As you probably know, Liza and I have a business called Storytime Club. It’s a subscription-based book club for kids aged 0 – 6 years old, and we’re really proud of it.

To celebrate all the glory of winter, and cuddling up on the couch with a good book, we are giving away a month’s subscription to Storytime Club worth R299. Your child will get three gorgeous, age-appropriate books delivered to your door, hand picked by us (both mamas and trained journalists, as well as devoted bookworms). We understand that not much can beat the excitement of receiving a package through the post (aka courier… same difference right?) and we are so pleased to be able to bring this joy to a new generation of children.

26 May

To enter, all you have to do is upload your favourite photo of your little one/s reading, either via Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. Don’t forget to tag us and use the hashtag #readingisrad, then tell us here that you have done so. Good luck!

Competition is open to residents of the Western Cape only and closes on 14 August. You will be notified by mail.

Storytime Club is finally here!

After many years of dreaming and collating and pulling things together, Liza and I are finally proud to be introducing Storytime Club. We are so excited about this new business and we do hope that you will all love it as much as we do.

I had a couple of friends recently ask me to explain it to them – when you are intimately involved in a business, you know it so well and it’s easy to forget that it isn’t always as obvious to everyone else.

Storytime Club is a subscription-based bookclub for your children. Liza’s entrepreneurial minded husband came up with the idea many years ago, and he thankfully helped us with the design of the website, other elements as well as a bit of savvy business advice too. So, to sign your little ones up, you simply visit our website, fill out the necessary forms and then you sit back and relax, and each month three hand-selected, age-appropriate books will be delivered to your door via courier.

The books are selected by us, both mothers and trained journalists, and we beautifully wrap each parcel, so your child will have something to really look forward to each month. Then all you have to do is grab a blankie, curl up on the couch and read together.


We are so excited to watch this business of ours grow into something really special. Creating a library of wonderful books that will grow and develop with your child.

In the wise old words of Dr Seuss: “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go!”


If you have any questions, comments or would like to sign your child or children up, please do let us know. You can mention it here, or click through to the site here.
