Mango and Sprint are preparing for ‘big school’.
Grandma comes to visit and gives them a lunchbox… but it’s no ordinary lunchbox!
The Magic Lunchbox is a captivating, fun story about packing a healthy lunchbox, especially for children in their transition to ‘big’ school.
Central Coast author Angela Barrett and illustrator David Walsh have created a delightful storybook to inspire and delight children in the 4 to 6-year age group. In the story, Grandma enlists the help of a magic lunchbox to show Mango and Sprint which foods to pack for school. It supports children of this age group to understand everyday healthy food choices and “the magic made, when you put good food inside.”
You can read the storybook at home or in the classroom. You can now also watch the new video above that brings this book to life through a magical, animated storytelling!
