Story Image Tool Examples

Every Story Image Tool contains symbolic themes and images. Like mythological stories, they are the ‘little treasures of life’, designed to capture a young person’s imagination.

Tools include: digital song stories, mythology-based narratives, poster images, booklets, handouts, audiobooks and other 3D resources such as multicultural dolls, animal models and products of nature.

With a focus on the natural and historical worlds combined, Story Image Tools are a source of discussion for any parent/carer, teacher, counsellor or therapist who wants to instantly improve connection and communication with young people.
