Schoolyard Stories

Inspire | Create | Publish

An Australian owned business, Schoolyard Stories is a completely new and exciting fundraising concept that will get your children excited about reading, writing and illustrating, by seeing their work published in a real book. By becoming published authors and illustrators, students will delight in sharing their stories and artwork with family and friends.

By promoting literacy and healthy eating your school or club will benefit from the funds raised as well as the activity itself.

Affordably priced, PRINT RUNS start from as little as 50 COPIES.


Each child will write a one-page story and we will compile them into a real paperback book of the highest quality. Each child also has the opportunity to design their own cover.  Every student will want to own a copy and the book will sell itself. Our website is a great resource for teachers and parents.


Your cookbook can have that professional look or it may be illustrated by the students themselves. Every student in your school can design his/her own cover! Children will enjoy trying their friends’ favourite meal.

Cookbooks and storybooks make great gift ideas for grandparents, extended family and friends.

Your child’s personalised cover makes this gift extra special and completely unique!


Publishing is about memories and we can help you capture your memories in a beautiful and affordable yearbook.

Schoolyard Stories is a great fundraising opportunity and the childrens very own published story is a wonderful keepsake. On the day of our storybook launch, kids in the schoolyard were all huddled together reading their stories. How exciting to see kids huddled around a book rather than an electronic gadget.

The quality of the books was great and I was guided through the publishing process every step of the way. Easy to do and profitable.
