Graham Davidson and Emily S. Smith have created “Storytime Lane”, a YouTube channel with regular storytelling webisodes and a corresponding website (which also sells picture books written and illustrated by Emily and Graham), in response to the declining literacy rates in Australia. They hope their project will support the development of young children’s literacy skills by providing adults and children with access to visual storytelling and free resources and activities that extend on those stories. The webisodes will have an Auslan interpreter signing the stories so more people have a greater access to the content. In conjunction with the Hunter Writers’ Centre, Graham and Emily will be launching the first webisode, the website and also the first book “Betty the Yeti’s Disappointing Day” at Wallsend Library on January 27th 2018.
