Our Story

Thanks for stopping by and learning a bit more about Little Koala Book Club's beginnings and founder, Andrea, along with the fabulous testing, creative and development team.

As a vivid fantasy and sci-fi book reader (yes she read Game of Thrones before the TV serious came out...;)  and traveller, mum of two little girls, Andrea is now passionate about finding and reading great story books to her little ones, full of adventures and sharing that love of reading.

Making cubby houses and ships and acting out characters with her two little koalas (daughters) in Brisbane, Australia, in between coffees is life now. 

Her four year old’s love of books and dressing up fuelled the idea of designing fuss- free story book boxes that encouraged imagination, creativity and fun way to connect with little ones. Dressing up and creating props to bring the characters and stories to life has helped build her little one's creativity.

With family abroad in Dubai, Colombia and U.S.and also close by, these special moments were shared via video calls, photos and videos on WhatsApp and Facebook. Her in-laws, Wendy and Larry from the U.S. (part of the creative and development team), sent the first Grandparent storytime via video thus grandparent storytime video concept grew.

 

Andrea Little Koala Book Club

Andrea and co. aim to help families, similar to her own, that live apart or with busy life commitments, to connect, encourage creativity and have fun with their little ones, reading and dressing up at home or virtually, which is Little Koala Book Club’s main mission.

 

Both Larry and Wendy bring educational expertise to the team with combined 70 years of experience and Masters qualifications in Education.

 
Claudia (aka Abuelita) is our Finance and Operations guru. Her expertise is also English/Spanish translations and sourcing the best bilingual books.
Our cheeky Zara is our tester. She tries out all the books and dress ups. We usually know a book is a  good one when she says 'read it again please!'.
 

Thanks for your support! We truly hope you and your little one will have fun getting creative with imaginative play and sharing old school activities; reading, dress up and crafts!
